Dan Eldridge

Formerly a Pittsburgh City Paper staff editor and a Philadelphia Weekly copy editor, Dan has been writing about travel, entrepreneurship, and a wide array of American pop culture for nearly two decades. Aside from co-authoring multiple guidebooks and founding Young Pioneers, a travel magazine that was nominated for an Independent Press Award by Utne Reader, Dan’s work has appeared in the Daily Telegraph (UK), Houston Chronicle, Miami Herald, Paste, Seattle Magazine, and nearly every major Pittsburgh-based publication.

A native of the San Francisco Bay Area, Dan was raised in a military family and has lived in six different states and three different countries, including Turkey, where he taught English and worked as an editor for a backpacker’s magazine in Istanbul. Pittsburgh, however, will always be home; it was there that Dan graduated from Peters Township High School, studied journalism at the University of Pittsburgh, and launched his writing career with internships at Pitt Magazine and the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Currently based in Philadelphia with his fiancée and their four cats, Dan blogs about creative and alternative entrepreneurship at http://laborparty.wordpress.com when he isn’t busy with article or book projects. He’s also in the process of re-launching Young Pioneers as the creative entrepreneurial community’s premiere print magazine and publishing company.
