Since moving to Orlando in 1970, I have lived in several Central Florida communities including; Conway, Winter Park, Longwood. Currently I call College Park my home.
After graduating from the University of Central Florida (UCF) with a BS/BA with a major in Accounting and a minor in Computer Science, I worked for 15 years developing hospital and governmental software for accounting applications.
In the Fall of 2000, as the popularity of the Internet was beginning to become apparent I stepped out of the programming arena and accepted a position with About.com as the Orlando Guide. For over 13 years I covered everything Orlando including Theme Parks, Real Estate, Education and Dining.
In an effort to present a more personalized look at the Orlando area, I started my own blog in 2013. My goal is to share with others some of the not-so-obvious treasures and treats that Orlando has to offer.
I have watched Orlando grow from a small town with just a few tourist attractions, a minor university (then called FTU) and almost no corporate business to speak of to a large, diverse city that is recognized world-wide as a premiere tourist destination. For locals, the area has a wonderful mix of culture, tourism, sports and sunshine – something to appeal to everyone.
Whether you are traveling to the tourist capital of the world, looking to relocate to Orlando or a resident seeking information and advice, I am here to help you out.
