As a self-admitted marketing geek, Tripp is the guy that actually settles into a nice copy of “The 22 Immutable Laws of Branding” and “Leadership Is An Art.” Tripp is a Silver Telly Award recipient and has produced a critically-acclaimed radio show for public radio and an award-winning TV show for ROOT Sports. Additionally he co-authored the book “Pittsburgh Born, Pittsburgh Bred” for the Heinz History Center as part of the Pgh250 celebration. Tripp volunteers a lot of his time as a founding and current Board member of Aspinwall Neighborhood Watch, a group that focuses on neighborhood safety, elderly outreach, and neighborhood beautification. He and his family, Katie and 3 kids, have lived in Aspinwall for more than 25 years and love it! When he isn’t working he likes reading by a fire pit, playing guitar, drinking craft beer, eating peanuts, and grilling… over charcoal of course.
