I'm the digital managing editor for NJ1015.com. I got my start writing obits for The Jersey Journal (just like John Travolta in "Perfect," a 1985 movie you've never seen and don't recommend you see, either). I then spent years covering Central Jersey as an investigative reporter. I take it personally if you badmouth Newark, the Real Housewives, or Rutgers. Follow me on Twitter @BichaoNJ.
