I traveled to Bolivia and produced this story and video for USA Today. The story ran online and was the lead feature in the paper's domestic edition. The Pulitzer Center supported my trip.

I produced this video for the Flagler College Athletic Department. The purpose was to thank sponsors and supporters of Flagler College athletes and explore ways in which the athletes contribute to the community in St. Augustine, Florida.
For this story, I interviewed the owner of a horse carriage company, a veterinarian and a city official in Savannah, Georgia, after the city took measures to protect horses that work in the summer heat. The Weather Channel URL is no longer active, so I use a YouTube link.
Economic hardship forces many Cubans to set out for the United States. They often leave their families behind. For this story, I interviewed young people who had just reached the U.S. and the family members they left behind in Cuba.
For this story, I interviewed residents of St. George, Georgia. Authorities had ordered residents to evacuate as a wildfire continued to spread in the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge near the Florida-Georgia border. Many townspeople refused to leave, saying they wanted to stay behind to try to save homes and businesses. The Weather Channel URL is no longer active, so I use a YouTube link.
I assisted the South Florida Sun Sentinel with an investigation into Cuban organized crime. My role was to track down fugitives in Cuba. Among those I found: Angel Ricardo Mendoza, wanted on charges of stealing $180,000 in nickels from the Federal Reserve. Mendoza told me he couldn’t resist the temptation to steal 900 bags of nickels. He had deep regrets. "I committed a crime I shouldn't have."
I filed this obituary after the death of Fidel Castro. It was based on interviews with people who had fought with the Cuban leader during the revolution or worked or had close contact with him afterward. I was looking for anecdotes about Castro, not political opinions, as a way of revealing something about the character of the Cuban president.
