I was born and raised in Pittsburgh and now I’m raising my two sons, Victor and John, here as well. We call Squirrel Hill our home and spend a lot of time enjoying our neighborhood parks and local shops. My oldest son is learning to cook and has pretty adventurous tastes. So we frequent the farmer’s market and the Strip District shopping for local produce and special ingredients. I’ve been raising funds for nonprofits for more than 30 years and I’m also a big user of our trail systems. So, naturally, when I saw the opportunity to apply my skills and knowledge to benefit work that I’m passionate about, I was very excited. I feel incredibly privileged to be a part of this amazing team at Friends of the Riverfront.
