Hello, and thank you for your interest in my work.
My name is Marino Eccher. I'm a Chicago native who grew up in St. Paul. I currently report for the St. Paul Pioneer Press, where I cover courts and public safety. You can find a complete selection of work samples here.
In the past, I've also topics ranging from business to education to special projects. I've also worked as a web producer for one of the busiest newspaper websites in the country. For more details, please visit my resume.
My passion for journalism is an outgrowth of a lifelong enthusiasm for telling stories. I'm captivated by the comedy, tragedy and rich texture of the human condition, and I strive to illuminate some facet of it - big or small, whatever the medium - in all my work.
