John Hill (Columbian Staff)



I joined The Columbian in 1995 as a systems editor in the newsroom, and have worn several hats since then, including technology columnist, copy editor, page designer and data analyst. Then, in 2002 I moved into IT where I've helped implement and support several systems, mostly for news publishing and archiving. Lately, my focus has been managing projects to build digital products, which is a fancy way of saying Web-related stuff on Before coming here, I worked as a reporter at other newspapers in the Pacific Northwest, where I've lived all of my life (WSU, 1988).

In my spare time, I enjoy art, cooking, music and the outdoors with my wife and two kids.
