About Tony Russo

Tony Russo got into journalism after college because he'd heard the saying "Journalism is history's first draft" and, as a history student, it seemed preferable to learning to make lattes. Tony spends his free time as a random blogger, podcaster, and sometime Twitter troll. He lives in Delmar, Maryland with his wife, four daughters, two dogs (Pike and Pepper), and, surprisingly, no ideas for a sitcom.
