About Me

I am not a resident of Homewood, but lived there from grade school (Belmar) to high school (Westinghouse) and college (CMU and PITT).  My parents still live there as well as friends.  I am very concerned about the neighborhood and have been for a while. The violence, the neglect and the lack of a business corridor bothers me, because I remember when it was a vibrant and bustling community. 

I am currently starting a group of like minded people who want to join forces to bring businesses back to Homewood. 

Homewood as you know has a lot of challenges, so it’s going to take all of us to really change things. We cannot expect anyone else to fix up our community, but us.

So a little about me, I am an entrepreneur with over 10 years of experience in starting and operating different type of businesses as a wholesaler, distributor, vendor, consultant, and retailer.

I am currently looking to start a business in Homewood, if I can find a location which is really hard because, there are not a lot of options.

The Homewood Chronicles

Oct. 2005 - March 2010

Reports from a community in transition

In October 2005, after a bullet came through his living room window, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reporter Elwin Green began writing "My Homewood," the first blog on the P-G's website. For 4 1/2 years, "My Homewood" shared stories of tragedy and beauty, of perplexity and hope - stories that live again in "The Homewood Chronicles."
