We consist of a small but creative team of ‘burgh loving Pittsburghers. From photos of the amazing city skyline to pics of your kids enjoying the Buccos at PNC Park, we love seeing Pittsburgh through your eyes! We get to know more about our Pittsburgh Beautiful fans everyday, so here’s a tad bit about us.

Chris Klein

Founder & Owner

Although his family relocated to central PA decades ago, Chris moved to Pittsburgh in 1993. His roots came from Pittsburgh, and his grandmother was born in Castle Shannon in the early 1900’s. Pittsburgh in the early 20th Century, while booming and bustling, was a dirty place. Not so today! Pittsburgh moved him. He loves to capture beauty in unique ways and was inspired to create Pittsburgh Beautiful as a way to share that with everyone.

David Moio

Writer – Sports – “Moio’s Musings”

Pittsburgh born and raised, black and gold runs through my veins.  I am a writer at heart (and by profession in a previous life), but found my calling teaching everybody’s favorite subject, high school English, at Penn-Trafford High School where I also coach girls basketball.  I played some ball when I was younger, and still play old-man dek hockey to my wife’s dismay.  I have the greatest blended family a man could have – seven kids combined between me and my Northern Star, my beautiful wife, Erin.
