The Charlotte Observer - February 2008
In 2008, I was chosen to work on the Observer’s investigative project, “The Cruelest Cuts” – a six-part series that exposed the plights of poultry workers. It was a challenging project because of the large amount of people involved from start to finish. At any given time I was dealing with dozens of different opinions and personalities. It was a classic give and take situation and required a lot of patience and compromise. There was also constant change from day to day and hour to hour. One small change would often have a domino effect on the entire series causing major adjustments to design. The series won numerous awards and was a Pulitzer finalist.
