Maddie
 
Welcome Maddie to the Pittsburgh Bar Trivia Team!  Maddie is a figure skating instructor and professional figure skater.  She hails from the town of Wilmette, IL where most of her family resides.  But, she is happy to be here in Pittsburgh living with her 3 roommates and their beautiful dog, Inanna.  Maddie enjoys painting, drawing, dancing, and collecting interesting facts.

Why do you like calling trivia?

"Although I love trivia, I'm not very good at it.  When it comes to trivia, my memory is like a goldfish, fleeting.  Calling trivia is an opportunity to learn and participate without the pressure of answering in a timely manner."

You can find Maddie at our newest show: Walnut Grill in Bethel Park beginning September 13th on Mondays from 6-8pm.
