cropWelcome to my website!


I’m a TV reporter and anchor and lifelong Rochesterian. I grew up in the Maplewood neighborhood on beautiful Seneca Parkway and graduated from John Marshall High School and Cornell University.


I write about urban education, downtown, regional development, local and state politics, social media and technology. I believe strongly in the future of Rochester.


The Rochesterian launched in December 2011. Less than a year later, readers of City Newspaper, the area’s definitive annual poll, named it Best Blog.


Find me on Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus.


Views expressed on The Rochesterian are my own.


Thank you for being here.
