Welcome to

The Townie Tourist

Natives and newcomer Floridians, we are a lovely people; creating a community like none other.  Watch our state unfold in stories on art, culture, fashion, and history.   You'll get to experience the towns I explore, hear the stories I'm told, and share this wild, wonderful place with me.


Townie Tourist LIVE Show

Catch the LIVE Facebook show every Saturday morning at 10:00 AM EST.  I have traveled all over Central Florida to tour historic homes, visit small towns, meet unique personalities, and share stories of the fastest growing region in Florida. 

The Blog

I live in a place that people dream about.  Warm, sunny weather combined with a slower pace of life make this the holiday or retirement destination for many Americans.

For those who are new and those who are native, the Townie Tourist blog offers insight into the lifestyle many of us think ourselves lucky to enjoy.

The Podcast

As creatives and makers, business owners and dreamers, we Orlandoans whether natives or not have a certain je ne sais quoi.  Learn more about the most important commodity our city has, the people who make Orlando great.

Florida is a strange place: hot, beautiful, ugly. I love it here, and how nothing makes sense but still, somehow, there is a rhythm.
