Michael St. Clair

Special Sections Editor and Real Estate Weekly Editor

Job description

Helping readers find interesting things to do, see, or read about, and helping advertisers find those readers by creating informative, eye-catching sections and pages.


A bachelor’s degree in English, with a lot of philosophy and a love of science. Michael learned graphic design and layout at a young age by sitting-in on classes while his mother attended graphic arts courses, with a little formal training later at Mesa State College.


A young Michael St. Clair quickly learned that being in outer space made everything much cooler. Too tall to be an astronaut, he learned that imagining things was almost as good, so he pursued ways to turn imagination into something tangible.

This course led to being the production editor of his high school paper, one heck of a good bookseller in two local book stores, and finally to a career in newspaper starting in Fort Collins at the Fort Collins Coloradoan, where he made things read well and look good for nearly a decade.

Returning to the Grand Valley, he does his best to continue his goals while being closer to friends and family.


Born a few centuries too late, Michael has a fascination with the Napoleonic Royal Navy in particular and the age of fighting sail in general. Born a few centuries too early, he also enjoys science fiction and speculative fiction of all types, and is an avid reader of many types of books, often including ones that are written during the time period they are set in.

In his actual era, he enjoys drawing and computer art, writing, building his own computers, fixing his and other people’s computer woes, creating gadgets and solutions to make his life easier, and staring back at his dog, Jack, trying to figure out what the critter is thinking. He firmly believes that Jack is attempting the same thing.
