About Steve VolkI’ve been working as a journalist since 1997, covering crime, cops, courts, politics, education, health, fatherhood and science for alt. weeklies in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. I am currently freelancing and serving as writer at large for Philadelphia Magazine, one of the last city magazines in America focused on doing real journalism. To learn just a little bit more about me (I promise, just a little bit), and why I chose to call this blog The Generalist, read on.
(In the fall of 2011, I started conducting author appearances for interested book clubs. These are usually private. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.)
