FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
With the new title, Daniel will continue to develop his responsibilities in content acquisition and editing. The narrowed defining of a specific role in the company is in recognition of the continued expertise he brings to the magazine. The move to focus his title will allow for the company to recognize more roles and departments, opening doors for other staff members to aid in accelerating the success of the magazine.
When the pandemic hit early in 2020, and the market for entertainment news was reduced, due to increased unemployment and limited financial resources of the average consumer, Daniel made the significant decision to make available all content online to benefit and aid those with the aspiring drive to create art and be a part of the entertainment industry. During this pivot, the magazine moved strongly toward a focus on the process behind artistic creation, giving people tips and advice on how they could make money from art without leaving home.
