I am a native West Virginian and a graduate of The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, with a career spanning more than 16 years in the newspaper industry. I previously have worked for The Cumberland Times-News, The Frederick News-Post and The Washington Times. I have worked for The Gazette since April 2009. Professionally, I have received more than 80 design awards during my career. In my personal time I enjoy studying history, particularly history as it pertains to war. I am an avid fisherman, and hope to one day set the Guinness World Record for number of fish caught within a 24-hour period. HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!
