As a veteran, award-winning newspaper and television journalist, I've been telling stories and shooting video for nearly 15 years.
Stories have the power to change attitudes, change perceptions and change lives.
Now the official Storyteller of the Orange County Sheriff's Office, I have the opportunity to highlight the brave men and women of Central Florida's largest law enforcement agency.
