Greetings. I'm Trey Barrineau, an experienced editor and writer in the Washington, D.C., area whose work has appeared in USA TODAY and other publications.
I'm currently the editor of Door & Window Market magazine (DWM), an award-winning B2B publication that covers the residential fenestration industry. I edit and write a wide range of content, from breaking-news items and first-person blog posts for the Web to 4,000-word, deeply researched features for print. I also manage DWM's social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram, and I make frequent appearances in DWMs video newscasts as well. I joined DWM in December 2014.
In 2017, my coverage of Venezuela's takeover of a U.S. glass factory was a finalist in the prestigious Jesse H. Neal Awards for excellence in U.S. business writing.
From September 2000 to December 2014, I was a multi-platform editor in USA TODAY's Life section. I composed blog entries and stories, managed the Life website's presentation on mobile and desktop platforms during the evening hours, and created posts for USA TODAY's branded social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter. I also helped copy-edit all of the national newspaper's print products.
During my time at USA TODAY, I was honored multiple times for outstanding headlines, and my articles and blog posts generated more than 10 million pageviews.
Outside of the newsroom, my college football blog, Tigerpundit, launched in 2002, has been called the first one ever in that niche.
