Wealth Management and Best-Selling Author

Three words you'd use to describe your area:

The land of bridges and sports!

What's your favorite local cafe or coffee shop and why?

Starbucks in Meadows Hills

You've got a dog lover visiting, where do you go?

Head to the outskirts of town to a town called Mars. There are three dog parks that wind through the forest and where your dog can let loose and you can enjoy all the greenery!

You need a get-away-from it all escape, where do you go and why?

I stay right here in downtown Pittsburg and explore like a tourist. I'll catch a Penguins game or walk along the river and see the city with fresh eyes. We truly live in a wonderful place!

A foodie fanatic is visiting, where do you take them and what will you order?

Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza. Order pizza (well done) and wings. Watch the game and then send me an email and thank me for sharing the best place around!

You're filling a gift bag that showcases 3 - 5 of your favorite local goods, what do you include?

A Pittsburg Penguins scarf, a Pittsburg Steelers jersey, a Made in Pittsburg slice of steel (available at Pittsburg Tourism downtown) and of course, a mug from the Pitt, one of my fav cafes.

City explorers unite! Where would you take a visitor if you only had 3 hours to show off your area and why?

Start and end at the river. If you only have 3 hours, really slow down and enjoy it. The walk takes you through all of our neighbourhoods. Stop often. Rest. Relax. Enjoy.

Sporting teams can bring a community together - what teams do you love to cheer for?

Pittsburg Penguins in the winter and Pittsburg Steelers all year round!

How long have you lived in this incredible place? What brought you here and why you suggest someone else consider moving here?

Pittsburg isn't my native home but since I've arrived here 15 years ago it's become my true spirtitual home. The people are the best in the world.

The neighborhood you call home and what you love about it:

Meadow Hills is my neighbourhood which means we are at the highest point in the city so I can see the stadiums, the university, the bridges and the incredible buzz that surrounds our vibrant city from my 25th story balcony.
