Cory VaillancourtCory Vaillancourt

Originally from Chicago, Cory Vaillancourt comes to the Erie Reader after spending the previous 12 years cranking out mind-numbing press releases on 10-minutes' notice. His interests include: bacon, booze, puppy-dogs, glowing rectangles, unicorns, football, ice cream cones, bacon, Pastafarianism, glitter, recreational amateur fracking, and music. His dislikes include: music, confined spaces, anything with curry or mayonnaise on it, and that guy from the Sham-Wow commercials. When not writing for the Erie Reader, Cory can usually be found.

Vaillancourt lives in a heavily-fortified compound somewhere near the North Coast of the United States, although you can follow him on Twitter @VLNCRT or email him at
