633 N. Orange Avenue
I edit politics and government copy from Washington and Tallahassee for both the Orlando Sentinel and the South Florida Sun Sentinel. I also run our coverage of NASA, here and in Washington.
I'm the oldest content editor at the Sentinel, with 46 years of newspaper experience, most of it in Florida. After graduating from Brandeis University with a degree in English and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, I spent a year at the Quincy, Mass., Patriot Ledger and a post-grad year at Columbia before moving to The Miami Herald in 1968. I spent 16 years in Miami, Tallahassee and Washington for the Herald before becoming an editor in the Knight-Ridder Washington Bureau. In 1991, I moved to the Tallahassee Democrat as managing editor and came to the Sentinel in 2000 as an associate managing editor. In Orlando, I've run metro news, projects, state news coverage and politics. My daughter, Gwyneth, is a former Sentinel reporter, now married to a Ph.D. economist who's gone back to law school at Yale. With my wife, Judy Doyle, I have two stepchildren -- Josh, an FBI agent, and Megan, a saleswoman. A third stepchild, Katie, died of a brain tumor in 2009.
