I was born in Harve De Grace, MD, in September of 1973. My family moved to Pittsburgh, PA, before I was a year old so let’s just agree I am from Pittsburgh (and proud of it!). By the age of six or seven I became surprisingly interested in 3 things: words, music and golf. Strange mix, I know, but I’m never boring at parties. Anyway, years later I graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, after a two-year “visit” to Ohio University, with a BA in Journalism specializing in Public Relations. This basically means I was taught to put facts in the correct order and in my spare time be creative. While all of that was going on I played in several not-so-serious bands, and played competitive golf.
After college I lived in Atlanta, GA, for about 5 years where I worked as a professional studio and touring drummer, while working in the golf industry to pay the bills. I enjoyed most of that experience even though it was during this period I learned everything is a business.
Moving back to “yankee-land” I eventually ended up in a most beautiful part of the country: Lancaster, PA. I know, you are thinking, “Ew, isn’t that just farms and Amish people?” Keep thinking that and don’t come here. We like it just the way it is! In addition to contributing to Media Medusa, I am the Head Golf Coach at Linden Hall and a certified Master Teaching Professional through PGTAA (visit my Facebook page for more about my golf instruction). Plus, I’m an outside mortgage consultant for Liberty United Mortgage.
I look forward to sharing my thoughts, feelings and opinions with my readers about words, music and golf, mixed with some facts in the correct order. I may even venture out into the habitats of pop-culture and technology (don’t tell the boss!).
I live with my beautiful girlfriend, Heather, her beautiful daughter, Kaitlin, and my editor, Maggie (pictured right).
I hope you enjoy what I have to share at Media Medusa, and I welcome any and all comments, suggestions and money orders. Until next time, I’ll see you on the Internet.
