I’ve been working as a city reporter since 1997, covering every facet of city life—particularly crime, cops, courts, politics and education—for alt. weeklies in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, culminating in an ongoing relationship with Philadelphia Magazine, one of the last city magazines in America focused on doing real journalism. I am happy to say I start back there, full time, in July. To learn just a little bit more about me (I promise, just a little bit), and why I chose to call this blog The Generalist.
