Biography

Before becoming the staff writer in the Office of College Communications I was a journalist for, among other newspapers and wire services, Roll Call, The York Daily Record and The Associated Press. 

I covered a wide range of beats -- agricluture, business, courts, religion, features and more. Primarily, I wrote about politics and government. History -- in particular 19th and early 20th century American and European -- dominates my interests. 

As a freelance writer, I have written on a range of topics and news events for a number of publications including The New York Times, Reuters, Philadelphia Daily News, Wilmington News Journal, Central PA Magazine and Harrisburg Magazine. 

In 2009, I started with two partners a monthly community newspaper in Harrisburg, TheBurg, for which I was the editor and publisher. We sold it four years later. I live in Hummelstown, Pa. with my wife, Angela, and our two children, Emma and Elijah.
