hello! 

I'm Paolo! And I love to tell stories. As a writer, editor and art director, I've spent almost 15 years telling stories. My writing has appeared in the National Post, Toronto Star and various other print and online publications. 
I've spent much of that time as a journalist. At the Toronto Star, I oversaw major digital projects for both web and tablet. At the National Post I was an editor, art director, designer and head of production. I've had the chance to judge various editorial competitions, including the Society for News Design (SND), USA Today/Gannett Publishing Awards and the Toronto District School Board high school journalism competition. I've also had the good fortune to be nominated for three National Newspaper Awards (winning twice), and I've won more than 75 design awards from SND. I teach copy editing, design and layout part-time at Centennial College in the journalism and public relations programs. 
I'm always available for freelance writing, editing and design work. Send me a message and let's work together!
