Born and raised in Grove City, Pennsylvania, I spent 8 years in New York City before returning back to my hometown. I graduated from Marymount Manhattan College and worked in the news industry as a Production Assistant for Shepard Smith. Along with writing and video editing, I spent much of my time at Fox trying to get ridiculous stories about Grove City on national news (Thus far, I have succeeded 5 times). I've also worked in marketing and graphic design for Wendell August Forge and Earth Sun Moon. Today, I am manager of Olde Town Grove City and creator of www.livingthegrove.com, a website meant to inspire better living in Western PA. I am also on the board of the Grove City Area United Way, Grove City ArtWorks and Grove City Young Professionals.
