About

 

Exploring the state where I was born is like adventuring to another country.  It's wild, weird, and wonderful. 

I'm Jenny.  The Townie Tourist.

A love for the state of Florida and the people who live in it.

I was born here, in Orlando.  I spent my youth and adolescence here and when I left I vowed never to return.  Seriously, what more could there be to Orlando?  When I returned after living in Europe and Asia, I knew I would hate it here.  I was convinced that Florida was boring.

I was wrong.

Florida is wonderful.

I'm proud to be a native Floridian and count myself among the scrappy upstarts who created the future in spite of sandy soil and hurricanes and Indian wars and a humid heat that is unlike any other. 

I champion Orlando's creative class and craft culture.

Choosing inspiration over competition for a stronger community and a healthier way to tell the story of today's Florida.

Partnering with Bungalower has been the continued inspiration I need to keep telling the unique stories of the places and people in an around Central Florida.
