I have worked for Patch as a local editor since September 2010, when I launched the Northbrook Patch site. I ran that site until taking over as editor in Evanston in May 2012. 
I have been involved with the news business since age 12, when my first job was stuffing papers (folding the arts section into the news section, which came separately) for a local newsstand in my hometown. Within a year, I was promoted to selling them on the street, where my biggest sales day coincided with the impeachment of Bill Clinton. I attended college at the University of Chicago, where I majored in English and wrote for the school newspaper, The Maroon. I went on to earn a master of science degree from the Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University.  While in New York, I covered community news for the weekly Our Town, in addition to writing for the alternative weekly New York Press. Following graduation, I spent two years in St. Louis, working full-time as associate editor for the weekly newspaper Ladue News while freelancing for the West End Word.
