Andre "Contraversa" Traversa
Brief Biography of Andre Traversa:
Andre Traversa was born on January 16, 1970, in Chicago Ill, to first-generation immigrants, an Italian father and a Ukrainian mother.
Blind from birth, Andre never attended a school for the blind, but was successfully integrated into the public school system. He achieved sufficient academic success there to be accepted at Northwestern University, where he graduated with a degree in speech in 1992.
While in college, Andre began his transition from a progressive liberal who attended meetings of the International Socialist Organization to a staunch Christian conservative.
Feeling stifled by the "politically correct" mentality so prevalent on contemporary campuses, Andre found a home in talk-radio, which proved to be much friendlier to his ideas.
After college, Andre interned with nationally syndicated talk-show host Dick Staub, and later went on to produce and co-host a local Christian radio program in Chicago.
Currently, Andre is a columnist for www.888webtoday.com.
Though a conservative, Andre does not tow the party line rigidly.
A free thinker, he colors outside the lines. He says he is one
of the few people he knows who has a "hard head and a soft
heart." Andre's goal is to make you think critically, and
feel deeply. He currently resides in the Chicago suburb of Park
