In 2019, we launched South Bend Healthy Living as an online magazine to promote health and wellness throughout Northern Indiana. We hope our website and social media platform becomes your go-to destination for new workouts, nutritional advice, fitness tips, health news, healthy recipes, and so much more.
As a writer, managing editor and publisher, I have been covering health and wellness for over 20 years. Currently, I’m the managing editor for two healthcare publications from my hometown in Pittsburgh, PA: Western Pennsylvania Healthcare News and Pittsburgh Healthcare Report as well as two publications in Lake Oconee, a beautiful region outside Atlanta, GA: Lake Oconee Health and Lake Oconee Boomers.
Additionally, I’m a writer for several regional and trade publications across the country including Cannabis News Florida, MedEsthetics Magazine, Shady Avenue Magazine, South Florida Hospital News, and Western Pennsylvania Guide to Good Health. Previously, I focused on kids’ fitness for USA Hockey and the National Football League’s high school sports website. As a ghostwriter for Cleveland Clinic, I authored over 300 blog posts on their Health Essentials website—the #1 consumer resource for health information across the country.
I also covered men and women’s health topics for Southwest Airlines in-flight magazine. As an entrepreneur, I’ve had my own copywriting and media relations business since 1994. One of my proudest accomplishments was in 2001 when I co-founded the Pittsburgh Sports League which offers adult co-ed recreational sports leagues to over 24,000 young adults throughout the Pittsburgh region.
My wife and I moved to South Bend from Pittsburgh in August 2009. She’s a business professor at the University of Notre Dame and is the director of their communications program. Along the way, we produced the rambunctious and precocious offspring you see in the photo above.
After 20 years of covering health and wellness and managing several businesses, I wanted to share what I learned with you. While I’ll be writing some of the content on our website, you’ll also see stories from experts from around the country. And yes, you’ll see ads and sponsored content along the way—but we promise to carefully vet not only the expert writers but advertisers as well.
Ultimately, our hope is that South Bend Healthy Living will help you better manage your and your family’s health by keeping you informed and empowered through useful and exceptional content.
