I worked for more than 25 years at The Birmingham News and AL.com, where I (and my staffs) won numerous state, regional and national design and writing awards. In 2015, I returned to my alma mater, Auburn University, as editorial adviser for Auburn Student Media Group and an adjunct journalism instructor. In September 2020, I returned to Birmingham as executive editor of Business Alabama magazine.
I'm a past president of the Society for Features Journalism (SFJ) and vice president of the SFJ Foundation Board.
I've freelanced for a number of publications and companies, including the Alabama NewsCenter, Oxford magazine, Starnes Publishing, Gatehouse Media, Alabama Tourism Department, Auburn Magazine, Cooking Light magazine, AAA of Western and Central New York and the San Antonio Express-News.
