I am the education reporter for the Democrat and Chronicle, where I have worked since 2012. I have written extensively about the various predicaments of the Rochester City School District as well as its relationship with surrounding school districts, winning various journalism awards along the way.
I grew up in the suburb of Penfield and attended the University of Chicago and the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. Before arriving at the Democrat and Chronicle I worked for The Citizen in Auburn, New York. I live with my wife and children in the city of Rochester.
