Last month, I returned to a newsroom on a more permanent basis than my in-and-out stops consulting for Digital First. In mid-April, I started work as Visuals Editor for the Bay Area News Group, where I'm in charge of the photography and design departments for the San Jose Mercury News, Contra Costa Times, Oakland Tribune and a host of smaller dailies and weeklies.
In addition to getting to tackle some new challenges in that job description, I've returned to a place with many familiar faces and get to work closely with a few very good friends. Makes for a relatively easy transition.
I'm now based in Lafayette, Calif., and continue to be available for freelance work, though now on a decidedly tighter schedule.
