About Jeff Gerritt

I am the deputy editorial-page editor of The Blade. I recently moved to Toledo’s warehouse district, after spending 13 years in Detroit, where I was an editorial writer and columnist for the Detroit Free Press.

I’ve always walked the streets, writing about prisoners, addicts, homeless people, gang members -- and ordinary people with extraordinary stories.

I played drums professionally for three years, and I’ve also been a factory worker, security guard, house painter, janitor, landscaper, and construction worker.

Everyone has a story. I like the ones that haven’t been told.
