Hello! I am a volunteer, journalist, proud Pittsburgher and pizza lover.

I am a local news editor with the Tribune-Review, a Pittsburgh area news company. In my role, I lead news coverage in suburban Pittsburgh.

I began my professional journalism career as a reporter with the Sewickley Herald and The (Carnegie) Signal Item. I helped to usher in the use of social media across newspapers at the Trib. My digital news media accomplishments have been honored with numerous awards from the Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association, Society of Professional Journalists Keystone Pro Chapter and The Press Club of Western Pennsylvania.

In addition, my reporting skills also have been honored with a number of journalism awards.

My love for journalism is matched by my dedication to volunteering with the American Cancer Society — which I’ve done for more than 20 years, holding several positions nationally and regionally within the organization.

A native of the Pittsburgh area, I enjoy learning about the region’s history; am regularly referred to as “Buddy the Elf” for my love of Christmas; spend my free time catching up with the lives of the Bradys and Hortons on “Days of our Lives”; and continuing my quest for that perfect slice of pizza.
