Chris Mazzolini worked as a newspaper reporter in North Carolina for the past six years, where he jumped at the chance to cover all kinds of interesting and crazy things. Chris embedded with U.S. Marines on search-and-rescue operations in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. He got some government folks fired for corruption. And a bunch more.
Life on the beach was great (he lived in a place called Surf City!) but his heart and family were elsewhere. So Chris happily returned to Northeast Ohio to abandon the printing press, go full digital and build something great at Patch.  Before beginning his career as an ink-stained wretch, Chris graduated from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University with a master's degree. Before that, he studied political science and played football at Kenyon College. Even before that, he came of age at Wickliffe High School. Chris is happily married to his wife Karyn. Together, they maintain a stable of critters - two dogs, two cats. In his free time, he enjoys reading and sports. Like many of you, he curses the Steelers and Ravens, and roots in vain for the Browns.
