About Us


The Piedmont Pen, LLC, is owned and operated by Gabe Rivin, an award-winning freelance writer and editor.

Before starting The¬†Piedmont Pen, Gabe worked in Washington, D.C.,¬†where he cut his chops in journalism and communications. From there, he moved to Carrboro, North Carolina. There, in “the Paris of the Piedmont,” Gabe continued to work in marketing, public relations, journalism, and nonfiction editing. He also built a lifelong love for Carolina-style barbecue. Just don’t get him started on the vinegar sauce.

Gabe graduated with honors from the University of Michigan, where he studied English literature. He currently lives in Los Angeles.
