Dave Pidgeon is a journalist from Lititz, Pa., who has developed a diverse background in media from magazines to television to newspapers.
Birds-Eye View is Dave’s blog about life in our 30s. “Just when you think your 20s threw everything into upheaval,” he says, “Your 30s takes that and turns on the blender. Homeownership, home repair, parenthood, twists and turns in your career, new aches and pains — I mean, who doesn’t turn 30 and ask, what just happened?”
Dave writes for several regional and national magazines like Backpacker and Lancaster County, charting storylines and adventure for many different audiences. He also publishes an outdoor adventure blog called Compass Points.
He spent eight years working as a newspaper reporter, and in 2008, he extensively covered the presidential contest from the Pennsylvania primary through the general election. Dave currently works as assignment editor for WGAL-TV News 8, the top-rated news program in a Top 50 market.
He lives in Lititz with his wife Alison. They’re expecting their first child in December.
