Paul Guzzo - Tampa Bay LIfe Reporter

Tampa Bay LIfe Reporter

I am the reporter who found the lost segregation-era all-black Zion Cemetery. My unique beat also includes the local film industry, Tampa history, professional wrestling and the odd and unique people who make up this area. I have been a journalist in Tampa since 1999. In my younger years, I was also an independent filmmaker best known for an award-winning documentary on Charlie Wall, Tampa’s first crime lord. At home, I am married to a woman who is way out of my league and father of four kids who have diverse career goals – engineer, veterinarian, ballerina, and a “fighting ninja,” as opposed to a pacifist ninja.
