Thanks for visiting my website.

I am a versatile, award-winning journalist who covers the housing market for the Sun Sentinel in Fort Lauderdale.

On my first day, Oct. 24, 2005, Hurricane Wilma pummeled South Florida, the third hurricane to hit the region in 13 months. I participated in the newspaper’s storm coverage that was a finalist for the 2006 Pulitzer Prize.

Wilma was the unofficial end of South Florida’s housing boom, and the region would suffer from the devastating downturn that followed like few areas nationwide. I have generated numerous front-page stories and multimedia reports on foreclosures, price declines and other aspects of the historic housing collapse.

With the market now in recovery, I'm writing about home values doubling in some areas, homeowners regaining lost equity and buyers getting second chances at homeownership. I'm also tracking the commercial real estate market with stories on struggling retailers and the return of office construction. 

Before joining the Sentinel, I was a business writer for The Palm Beach Post. In addition to my regular duties, I helped cover the disputed presidential election of 2000 and also penned a popular fantasy football column, The Fantasy Freak.

I look forward to hearing from you.
