Editor, Local Politics

I’m a Tampa native who grew up in Seminole Heights. I graduated from Hillsborough High School then got degrees at the University of Tampa and the University of South Florida. Before joining the Times in 1995, I was a librarian at USF. Beginning in 2010, I was part of the Times reporting team that exposed the sham charity known as the U.S. Navy Veterans Association. And in 2012, I was researcher on "In God's Name," a Times series on unlicensed Christian group homes that was a Pulitzer Prize finalist.
