managing editor: Sonoma

I’m currently the managing editor of Sonoma magazine, a bimonthly magazine covering Sonoma County. I create the magazine’s content lineup, assign and edit articles, manage the editorial and production schedules, and collaborate closely with our creative director on design.

For our March/April 2017 issue, we marked the end of California’s drought—thanks to the wettest winter in two decades—with a cover story on where to see the county’s most stunning waterfalls. Another feature visited a mostly Latino elementary school where vandals spray-painted graffiti reading “Build the wall higher” during the final days of the November election. We explored the inspiring ways that both students and the larger community responded to the bigotry.
