About

bello pixI’ve been a journalist for almost 20 years. And it’s one of the best jobs I’ll ever have. The people I’ve met and the stories they’ve shared have been hysterically funny and achingly sad; they are complicated, angry, joyful, downtrodden, hopeless and hopeful. It’s a tough job and it can make you a little crazy, but where else can you be an eyewitness to history and then have the priviledge to share it with the world. No two days are alike. I’ve covered 9/11, hurricanes, mass shootings, presidential funerals, colorful (and crooked) politicians, cities on the verge of bankruptcy and fashion trends in the midwest. My storytelling adventures have taken me from New York City, where I was born and raised, to Dayton, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Detroit and now, Washington, D.C., where I am a national reporter for USA TODAY. On these pages, you’ll find samples of my work. Now after almost two decades in print, I’m discovering the joys of multimedia storytelling. I’m telling stories in video, engaging folks on social media sites and writing updates in 140 characters or less.
