He fell in love with journalism after taking it up as a hobby during his undergraduate career at California University of Pennsylvania. He returned to Cal U to obtain a graduate degree in education, but he decided to pursue a career in journalism after finding out that he enjoys spending time in the newsroom more than the classroom. Gene comes to the Times Leader after various freelance work for newspapers and magazines around the Pittsburgh area. When he isn't writing, he's making his way through his bookshelf of things written by others or digging through the dollar bin at a record store not unlike the one you should be at right now. Why aren't you at the record store? It's great there. Click name below for articles by Gene Axton
