The New Editor

He joined the staff of R&R as associate editor in 2011. He is also an active volunteer and president of the Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum. He has been working for WRP since Railfan & Railroad and Railroad Model Craftsman were acquired from Carstens Publications in 2014.
