Design Director, The Buffalo News

“SND has been a door to the world of news design for me. Through the conferences and competition I’ve met so many smart and creative people that have made me better at my craft. The moment for me that stuck out was when I spoke at SNDBoston in 2007. I was probably isolated here in Buffalo and hadn’t been very active in the Society to that point. I couldn’t believe how many people packed a room to listen to Scott Minister and I talk about our work. I felt obligated from that point on to give back through volunteering or critiquing younger designers work. The society is a powerful resource that all designers and editors should utilize. I guarantee you will become better at your job by being involved.”
