Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


Journalism students constantly ask me how much journalists make. But after that, they ask me how I got my start. In late 2001, I took a job writing obituaries for a branch of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, and in my free time, I jumped at every feature assignment I could get. After a few years, I built up enough clips to become a real-life reporter in upstate New York and then an editor at Alternative Press. After five years at AP, I decided to go back to my roots and won two statewide Keystone Press Awards from the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association. I left the paper to return to music during the summer of 2014, but you can read all my work here.
