I'm a journalist who has been living in Florida for the past year and a half. My hometown is Philadelphia, but I spent a number of years after college working and living in the Middle East, specifically Jordan, Israel and Egypt. My career brought me to Central Florida, and so far I'm really enjoying it here. Outside of work my time is spent checking out restaurants and live shows, reading books and literature of all sorts, and doing some writing of my own. I played competitive tennis in college, and still hit around on a regular basis. My typical weekend might involve drinks, dinner or going out with friends, visiting a used book store, driving to a new part of Florida on a day trip, entering the New Yorker magazine cartoon caption contest (though I've never won), or taking it easy at home.
