curated content

As editor of a weekly publication, I:

I also collaborated with our marketing team on brand strategies and supervised the assistant editor and several contractors.

During my years as editor, my writing skills were tested and sharpened as I wrote a weekly editorial.

I was also called upon to create articles and conduct interviews on behalf of The Lookout and its sister publication, Christian Standard
