Henry Powderly (Patch)
Patch Regional Editor covering Northern Suffolk County and the East End of Long Island.
Henry Powderly is a regional editor at Patch covering northern Suffolk County out to the East End. Henry began his career in journalism in the Hudson Valley of New York, where he worked for community weeklies in Kingston, Saugerties, Woodstock and New Paltz. After graduating from SUNY New Paltz with a bachelor's degree in English/Writing, Henry moved to Long Island. He spent the next five years covering business, government, arts, energy and wine as Web Editor for Long Island Business News, running its news- and blog-driven website, and creating all of its multimedia content. In a prior life, Henry studied jazz saxophone in New York City, and continued to play professionally throughout the Hudson Valley when he lived there. Today, when he's not plugged into his MacBook, he's either writing, listening to avant-garde jazz that makes his wife's skin itch, taking photos, reading Henry Miller or wandering through Long Island wine country.
