Welcome to my website

I’m currently the Managing Editor of the South Florida Business Journal in Miami, where I oversee the daily newsroom operations and digital strategy for the weekly print section and its daily business news site, which garners about 1.5 million visits per month.

I have a passion for online news and derive great pleasure from devising innovative ways to attract online readers by analyzing usage behaviors to develop the most relevant, original and appealing content for our growing audience.

Prior to working at the SFBJ, I was the Business Engagement Editor at The Arizona Republic where I managed and edited the Business site for azcentral.com, which generated about 100 million hits per month. Before that, I worked for 14 years as a reporter and editor at various publications. In my previous career, I worked for 15 years in banking and finance.

Please read on to learn more about my skills and work history, to view some of the print and online projects I’ve created and to access links to some of the organizations I’m involved with.

Thanks much,

Mel
