I am a zesty, type-A recovering rugby player based in Pittsburgh, PA, where I wrangle words for a living. I've researched everything from cycling abandoned superhighways to bread baking, with equal enthusiasm. My work, covering anything from green home renovations to cupcake contests to urban coyotes, has appeared in Bust, Parents, and American Baby, among other publications. I blog regularly for A Mother's Boutique at Mommy News and Views.

I am also on the board of directors at the Pittsburgh Toy Lending Library, a 39-year-old volunteer run cooperative. Who wants to borrow a scooter?
