I've lived in Pittsburgh only since 2004, during which I have spent time in many a neighborhood. For the past year, I've lived in Bloomfield. Yes, Bloomfield -- where the Italian food is fresh and the karaoke nights are long. I do not have formal training in writing, but it's always been a serious aspiration of mine. I'm interested in the different aspects of life in Pittsburgh. We have an extremely unique ecosystem full of young professionals, hipsters, college kids, older folks, coffee shops, dive bars, old churches turned music venues, and yes even starving artists. It's the perfect city to dip your toes into the waters of whatever art or trade you could possibly imagine.
