I am a Pittsburgh-based freelance writer and author with a decade's experience in the field. I spent several years in daily newspapers, covering national and local politics, schools, police and features. I write extensively about labor and history: In 2019, I published my first book, a history of the Great Steel Strike of 1919. I am available to write about politics, labor struggles and local history, and I will gladly provide copy and editing for political or union work.
