    Editor

    A native of Auburn, New York, Steve Fennessy's first journalism job was delivering his hometown newspaper. After graduating from American University, he became an intern at that same newspaper, was named business reporter, and then finally city editor. In 1996, he moved to Cairo, Egypt, where he worked as a reporter until 1999, when he became a features writer at the Democrat & Chronicle newspaper in Rochester, New York. The following year, he fled the frigid Northeast for Atlanta to be with his girlfriend, Christy, who is now his wife and the mother of their two boys, Casey and Jack. In Atlanta, Fennessy spent five years at Creative Loafing as news editor and senior writer. He joined Atlanta magazine as articles editor in 2005. Fennessy's stories have won awards from the City and Regional Magazine Association, the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies, and the New York State Associated Press Association. His 2006 story for Atlanta magazine "The Talented Dr. Krist" was featured in the 2007 edition of the Best American Crime Writing. In 2006, he was named a Knight-Wallace fellow at the University of Michigan, where he held the Mike Wallace Fellowship for Investigative Reporting during the 2006–07 academic year.
