David Drayer

Prepress Manager

Job description

Dave gives physical form to all the photos, graphics, stories and text that, within the computer system, make up the pages of The Daily Sentinel each day. The prepress department creates the plates from which the pages of a publication are printed on press, while also ensuring that all data making up each page transfer from the computer to the plate correctly.

Education
Bio

Between stints in Illinois (birthplace), Oregon (twice) and Oklahoma (where he discovered the newspaper industry), Dave has called Colorado home for the better portion of his life. He began working at The Daily Sentinel in 1997 in composing, which he took over seven years later. In that time, he has helped to guide the Sentinel, as printing technology has changed, into finding more advanced, cost-effective, and greener ways to produce a newspaper, culminating in 2010 with the introduction of a computer-to-plate system that uses no chemistry of any kind in the making of the plates.

Personal

A big proponent of the Great Indoors, David’s interests include reading, NFL football, watching movies (at home), and playing action, shooter and role-playing video games. Despite taking place outdoors, he also enjoys going to Renaissance festivals and mountain biking. He is an aspiring author in the genre of epic fantasy, and hopes to publish his first novel in the not-so-distant future.
