First stab at writing my own editorial!

full layout

I pitched the idea of covering the new adventure-sport-game of geocaching to my boss and he said, "sure, you wanna write it too?" UMM OK! So I started researching and compiling this Miami Herald "Tech Tuesday" display graphic.

I first discovered geocaching a while back when my Boy Scout friend took me on several awesome adventures around Miami and told me about the secret world of this treasure hunting game - naturally, I took this 'secret' to share with 190,000 Herald readers. 

Thanks Boss for allowing me this awesome opportunity to WRITE and design my own piece! 

I highly recommend checking out www.geocaching.com to find any geocaches near where ever you might be in the world. It's a lot of fun if you're a good hide-n-seeker!

Oil Spill illustration

oil and happy ocean habitats mix like.... : (

Could this oil spill disaster turn into any more of a fiasco? I'm very fearful about what a devastating effect the spill is already having/going to have on our ocean life and on our shores. The Miami Herald published my infographic this past Saturday about the possible ways the oil may effect our South Floridian habitats like the mangroves and sawgrass flats. Let's hope we find a way to actually solve the oil problem fast. And golf balls is probably not it.
