EDITOR IN CHIEF

My earliest contributions to BobVila.com came as a freelance writer, back in the early 00's. Eventually I became Managing Editor and finally Editor in Chief. This was during the tail end of Bob's TV career, when Home Improvement shows went from straight & informative to quirky, reality TV-type content like Trading Spaces. 

My job included managing the editorial calendar, article assignments, overseeing production of How-To videos, managing social (Bob was one of the first Twitter users to break 1 million followers), and keeping the brand at the fore of the home improvement industry.
