    I started with the Herald in 1989 in the darkroom and as a photographer. The evolution of newsrooms over the years - which saw significant staffing reductions and job reclassifications - required that I start writing stories for the paper, as well as taking pictures. I began that phase of my career as Dauphin's sports reporter before making the move to news, covering a variety of beats along the way. In 1997 I transferred to our sister paper in Swan River as editor of the Star and Times and in 1999 I returned to Dauphin to fill that same role here at the Herald.

    I began my career in the newspaper business at the very bottom of the totem pole, as a paper carrier. That eventually led to a job in the mailroom and then the pressroom. After 3-1/2 years as a pressman in Yorkton, Sask., I returned to Dauphin and the Herald where I once again worked in the press room. After a couple of years, however, I made the unexpected jump into the newsroom as sports reporter, leaving the pressroom for good in October 1998.
