Editor. Journalist. Writer. Communicator.
Today's rapidly evolving communications industry needs precise, creative and agile editors who can easily juggle the unique challenges of online and print media -- often in the same instant.
That's what I do, every day.
I'm currently a production editor at USA TODAY who is on the front lines of the newspaper's digital revolution. In the fall of 2007, I helped guide the merger of the Life section's print and online newsrooms by learning new technologies and teaching co-workers, and my efforts earned public praise from USA TODAY's management team (see right).
Today, I'm still leading and teaching -- and learning, too.
I can shape raw copy into an engaging narrative, craft award-winning headlines that captivate readers in print, online and on mobile devices, compose blog posts with the speed and skill of a veteran writer, mentor inexperienced journalists in the profession's best practices, and format all kinds of content for publishing across all platforms.
I'm eager to explore the future of communications and publishing, and I'm confident I have the tools to discover what's next.
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 currently NPR's executive vice president and chief content officer, in an e-mail to USA TODAY's staff on Oct. 12, 2007
