I was Art Director for HX Philadelphia Magazine from 2006 to 2008, responsible for design and layout for each weekly issue. Some content was provided from our sister magazine in NYC.
I couldn’t have asked for a better first job in Philadelphia. It was a perfect crash course in Philly restaurants, theater, festivals, events, and the LGBT scene.
Professionally, it was an essential crash course in fast-paced production, vendor management, and the press-day checklist.
