My Role

I'm the one you see driving toward a hurricane while everybody else is driving away. When the police scanner crackles with, "shots fired," I jump in my car and head to the scene. Fires? Kidnappings? Missing people? Car crashes? Drownings? These are my territory. I also specialize in writing about criminal consumer scams -- especially those involving elderly victims.
My Biography

I joined the Orlando Sentinel staff after working at newspapers in New York, New Jersey and Maryland. I've covered local government, education, crime and courts and have worked in Brevard, Osceola, Volusia and Orange counties. I'm currently on the breaking-news team.
My Interests

Reading (of course), drawing, making pottery, photography, cooking, kickboxing, step aerobics, weight training, yoga.
