We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted.

It is with mixed emotions that I announce my departure from Picket Fence Media as I venture out to pursue other opportunities.

Although I am excited for what my future holds, I can’t help but to feel sad about leaving the dedicated team that makes the San Clemente Times, Dana Point Times and The Capistrano Dispatch the top-notch local newspapers they are.

It has been an honor to serve the community over the past eight years, working hard to provide the best information to help residents (my neighbors) stay informed on the news of the day and to experience everything our beautiful tri-city area has to offer.

I would like to thank you, our readers, for your support, feedback and contribution to the editorial makeup of our papers. You have been of great assistance to me, and our team, via letters to the editor, questions, suggestions and story pitches about the interesting people, places, events and issues you care about. It has been a distinct pleasure serving you.

I’ll see you around town.
