Mindy Kinsey, Editor

When she was in kindergarten, Mindy Kinsey asked her mother how to spell “up the street” for the story she was writing, and she hasn’t put down a pencil since. An editor with  more than 20 years of magazine experience, Mindy joined Fox Chapel Publishing in 2010.

 

Bob Duncan, Technical Editor

Bob Duncan’s earliest memories revolve around his father’s woodworking shop, where he attempted to chop dovetails with a flat screwdriver trying to copy what his father was doing with a sharp chisel. Since then, he’s turned to woodworking whenever he has free time. Bob joined Fox Chapel Publishing in 2004.

 

Carly Glasmyre Haas, Junior Editor

Carly Glasmyre Haas has a master’s degree in English, and loves books and editing. However, ink and paper aren’t her only favorite smells—some of her best memories include the smell of sawdust, as she often helped her father in his workshop. She joined Fox Chapel Publishing in 2014, and currently assists with the production of woodworking books.

 

Jon Deck, Art Director

Jon Deck worked in a cabinet-making shop for several years between graphic design careers, and continues to fill his spare time with home-improvement projects and woodworking projects. He joined Fox Chapel Publishing in 2002.
