nutz.What brought you to working in digital product at USA Today?
and what were the big differences you saw in working on Newschoolers and Freeskier? (In terms of like the process, the vibe, etc.)
I guess that'd be a bit different though with freeskier being huge and all

Funny enough, David Levin, who I met on NS, convinced me to make the move. He promised unicorns and rainbows at every turn, and thus far he hasn’t been too
For the younger ones, Levin is the guy who made Scandalous and Blunt, filmed and edited for PBP, and was the first art director at Armada. We now work side by side at USA Today, along with other members of the ski industry we've managed to recruit.
There were huge differences in working for Newschoolers and Freeskier. At NS, I was the last say in everything, and it was really just me and cko doing it all. At Freeskier, I had a big say, but nowhere near the final one, and there was a team of 10 people working on things. Both were really fun in their own way, and I learned a lot at both.
(For what it’s worth, Freeskier is actually quite small. USA Today, on the other hand, is HUGE!)
