Hello, I’m Mark Ciemcioch, and I am a doer of many things, but mainly three things people pay me for.

I’ve been a professional writer for nearly 20 years now, mainly as a journalist in the Western New York area. My work has appeared in the Buffalo News, Buffalo Spree magazine, Western New York Catholic newspaper, USA Today online and several other publications. In 2013, I co-authored my first book with Brian Meyer called “Buffalo Bizarre,” a regional book about the weird, wild and wooly tales of Western New York’s past. And following my graduation from Second City Toronto’s writing program, I spent several years writing comedy sketches for the Dykes of Hazard, a monthly live variety program that I performed in as well.

I’ve also broadened my skill set to develop, write and manage online content for websites. For over a decade now, I have been responsible for the Western New York Catholic online site, a job that includes supervising redesigns, scheduling content, working with other staff members, troubleshooting and guiding the general mission of the site.

In recent years, social media has become essential in driving traffic to websites and reaching audiences with a personal touch. In addition to managing the social media platforms of the Western New York Catholic, I also supervise the feeds of the general Catholic Diocese of Buffalo, and even outside companies like Easton Entertainment. Much like technology software itself, my approach to social media continues to evolve.

So that’s my story. Thanks for visiting my site, and if you have any questions, feel free to contact me via Twitter.
