Editing

Over the course of my career, I have edited the FOBs (front-of-the-book sections) of two major city magazines (Denver and Chicago) and countless features and service journalism packages, plus spearheaded the editorial content for the launch of a Webby-honored website. This is a sampling of pieces I have edited, written by a variety of award-winning journalists.

Denver's Digital Health Boom

Medical care is no longer confined to the doctor’s office. Or even, sometimes, to an actual doctor. That iPhone in your pocket now has the capability to diagnose your cough, answer insurance questions, and get you pregnant…or at least help the process along. Digital health (think: smartphones, social networks, and internet applications that provide patients with health information and better access to physicians) encompasses everything from Fitbits to electronic medical records to telehealth—and the trend is booming in Colorado.

Inside the Drug Epidemic That's Killing Coloradans

No one ever thinks he’s going to become addicted to drugs: You know better, or you’ve got too much going for you. Especially in Colorado, celebrated as the land of the happy and healthy, it’s easy to assume we’re immune from problems with drug abuse, which seems more applicable to the lifestyles of international celebrities (such as Prince, who died of a fentanyl overdose last April) or unsavory happenings elsewhere. Thinking this way keeps the uncomfortable truth at a distance: Drug overdose is now the leading cause of injury death for Americans ages 25 to 64, and the primary culprit is a class of drugs called opioids.

The Pursuit of Happiness (cover story)

Coloradans have every reason to be well adjusted and super content: After all, we’re surrounded by majestic natural beauty; we enjoy near-constant sunshine; our lifestyles are active and healthy; and our friends like to play as hard as they work. In fact, according to the 2013 Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, Colorado is the seventh happiest state in the nation. (Worth noting: We’ve dropped from number two in 2012.) Our peers agree: Colorado residents are always landing on someone’s definitive list of the happiest, fittest, most dateable people in the country. By all accounts, we’re living the dream…right? Well, maybe. We asked experts to help us dig into what happiness looks like, where Colorado is falling short, and how we can find more satisfaction and fulfillment in our (already pretty awesome) lives.

Go Play Outside (cover story)

This article was a finalist for the 2013 City and Regional Magazine Association (CRMA) Award in the Leisure/Lifestyle Interests category. Get outta the house, go get a little dirty…but don’t go too far, OK? That’s what your mom always said, right? School was out, the weather was hot, and the whole day stretched out in front of you. It was good summertime advice—so we used it as a guide for creating this year’s rundown of 21 amazing, warm-weather adventures. We give you a taste of the hiking, camping, paddling, fishing, climbing, mountain biking, and road cycling within two hours of Denver. Plus, we’ve found the best spots to eat, drink, refuel, and stock up for your journey, whether you’re running the rapids, hitting the trail, or throwing out a line.

Top of the Town (cover story)

We can’t believe it’s been a year since our last lovefest with the Mile High City. But we’ve finally wrapped up months and months of super-secret investigating (read: a dizzying splurge on the finest meals, cocktails, shops, spa treatments, and entertainment our city has to offer) to bring you our 15th annual Top of the Town issue, and boy, are we exhausted—in the greatest kind of way. The more Denver grows, the trickier it becomes to identify the best of the best. However, we’re equal to the task, and this year we’ve even added more categories, just to make our jobs that much more difficult. (We know, we know: Woe is us.) But with record-breaking input from our readers, who submitted nearly 170,000 votes, we’ve narrowed it down to a stellar list of Denver’s best stuff. And let us tell you: The Mile High City has never looked so good.

Top of the Town (cover story)

Every year, when we start planning for this issue, two things happen: First, we cheer (loudly) about all the cocktail tasting, boutique hopping, menu sampling, massage getting, and gallery browsing ahead of us. Then, we steel ourselves for the hard part: choosing the very best. It’s no easy feat in Denver, where Sunday brunch is an art form, baseball games and art museums are equally appealing (in different ways, of course), and neighborhood pet shops are as adorable as their furry patrons. But we’ve eaten, shopped, explored, and indulged our way across Denver and beyond—and received more than 133,000 votes from our readers—so we can let you in on who’s bringing their A-game to the Mile High City this year. Enjoy.
