One of my proudest moments as a journalist … I canvassed the ground during recovery efforts to get first hand accounts of a tornado and its impact on a small neighborhood. I also took extensive photos, some of which can be found in the photos section of my resume site.
I am proud to have broken this story before any other local news outlets. A second Whole Foods to be built in East Sarasota County was criticized by the county environmental officials who said it would destroy critical wetlands.
I was intrigued by a proposal to change the definition of a mural and talked to some folks in different neighborhoods to see what they thought about the rules.
I won an investigative journalism award from the Florida Press Association for this piece in their 2014 Better Weekly Newspapers contest
