TREY BARRINEAU is an editor at Door & Window Market magazine, an award-winning publication dedicated to in-depth coverage of the fenestration industry. He joined the magazine's parent company, Key Communications, in December 2014.
From September 2000 to December 2014, Trey was a multiplatform editor and writer in USA TODAY's Life section, where he composed blog entries and stories, managed the Life website's presentation on mobile and desktop platforms, and created posts for the newspaper's branded social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter. He also helped edit all of the national newspaper's print products.
During his time at USA TODAY, Trey was honored multiple times for outstanding headlines, and his articles and blog posts generated more than 10 million pageviews.
Outside of the newsroom, Trey's college football blog, Tigerpundit, launched in 2002, is considered by one expert to be the very first in that niche.
Earlier in his career, Trey was a copy editor/page designer in news and sports at the Citizen-Times in Asheville, N.C. Before that, he spent three years as the sports editor of the Lenoir (N.C.) News-Topic.
Good work, good words
"Trey has led the Life desk's transition to dot-com posting in the past few weeks. Aside from running the show and managing the workload, he has been a patient teacher to those who still need some coaching. ... And despite the extra demands on his attention, he continues to dazzle on the print side." --Kinsey Wilson, former USA TODAY executive editor and most recently NPR's executive vice president and chief content officer, in an e-mail to USA TODAY's staff on Oct. 12, 2007
