As a business reporter for the Orlando Sentinel, I keep track of the companies and entities that serve locals and tourists alike in Central Florida. My job includes writing about retail businesses in Orlando, from the Apple stores jammed with international travelers to up-and-coming local shops. If you have a retail idea that is locally-focused, please feel free to email me.
I joined the Sentinel in 2006 to help establish an online newsletter for business news. I took on the tourism beat in 2008, and have also worked as a general assignment and cops reporter for Orlando Sentinel and OrlandoSentinel.com. Prior to joining the Sentinel, I worked at The Star-Ledger in Newark, N.J., and wrote for news outlets including the Los Angeles Times and the Baltimore Sun. I graduated from the University of Maryland, where I studied journalism and Spanish.
When I'm not breaking news, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I'm an avid cyclist and like exploring the Central Florida area on two wheels.
