Steven Josephson is a copy editor and page designer for the Colorado Mountain News Media shared copy desk, which oversees the design and copy editing of the Summit Daily, Vail Daily, Aspen Times, Post Independent and Steamboat Pilot & Today newspapers.
Steven came to the Summit Daily in September 2019 from Gatehouse Media where he served as a page designer for newspapers across the country. Prior to that, he worked as a copy editor and page designer for a group of newspapers in the Detroit metro area — which included The Oakland Press and Macomb Daily — where he was primarily responsible for designing special sections and supplementing local in-depth reporting with graphics and illustrations. In 2019, he won a first place award from the Detroit chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists for his illustration showing how potholes form.
Before working in news, Steven worked two and a half years as a teacher in Detroit Public Schools, teaching elementary science and art. He also worked as an Americorps member with a nonprofit organization that focused on teaching environmental stewardship and developing hands-on service learning projects with school-aged children in the city.
Steven carries three degrees: a master’s degree in elementary education from Oakland University in Michigan, a bachelor’s degree in fine art at the University of Northern Colorado and an associate’s degree in graphic design at Northwest College in Wyoming.
When he’s not working, Steven can be found cooking, gardening, reading comics or napping at home in Park County with his wife, daughter and coonhound, or else tromping through the mountains.
