As a tourism reporter for the Orlando Sentinel, I keep track of the companies and entities that serve the millions of visitors who come to Central Florida each year. My job includes writing about the nation's second-largest hotel market, as well as the country's second-largest convention center. I also cover Orlando's time-share industry, small attractions, aviation and small business. I work in tandem with our theme parks reporter, Jason Garcia, who covers Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, Universal Orlando and Sea World Orlando.
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 like daytrips, farmers' markets, spending time outdoors and cycling.
