I am thrilled and honored to take over as the guest editor for Patch. Although "guest" appears before my title, I'm very much at home in this special town. My famly moved here in the late 70's and I graduated from the high school where I played baseball and football. I was on Lou Marinelli's first team in 1981 and 31 years later he's still here, and now I'm back. I've aged a lot since then, while the Rams coach, somehow, has aged very little over the last three decades.
I'm following two incredibly talented editors in Sheryl Shaker and Jane Preziosi, who set the bar high not only for New Canaan, but for every Patch in the region. For the last four months, I've been the editor for Patch in Norwalk and I gained an appreciation and new found respect for the city that borders New Canaan. But New Canaan is home and I can't wait to get started.
