Story
Tagline
Florida Gators sports reporter from New Orleans.
Introduction
Born and raised just outside of New Orleans, La., I attended the University of Florida and graduated with a B.S. in Journalism. I currently work as a sports reporter for GatorCountry.com, covering Florida Gators football, basketball and basketball recruiting.

I use my Google+ account for both personal and professional use. At least 90 percent of my updates on G+ will not be public. I will post Florida Gators updates to a "Florida Fans" circle, as well as to a handful of different sports media circles.

My friends will not see those updates (unless they ask me to put them in that circle because they want the updates), as I will post all "Facebook" type status updates to my personal "Friends" circle.

Thus, if you want to follow me ala Twitter, just add me to one of your circles and I'll move you to the appropriate circle to receive the Florida Gators updates you want.

If you're my friend, I won't subject you to my Florida Gators updates unless you request it. The beauty of Google+ circles...

Mandeville, LA - Center Harbor, NH - Gainesville, FL
I visited several jewelers in town. Some were helpful, others were downright awful in terms of customer service and helping me find the right engagement ring. The moment I walked into Sanders, it was clear that was where I'd be buying from. I was able to work personally with Rick, the owner, and he was a God-send. I was able to pick out the unique style of ring I was looking for, and Rick was awesome helping get the custom order in quickly (I was on a short turnaround). The time he spent with me and the care with which he dealt with me were unparalleled. Extremely professional with an undeniably personal touch. Unexpectedly, my girlfriend of 2.5 years broke things off shortly after I had ordered the ring. Rick, once again, was a life-saver. He was able to help me get back almost all of what I paid for the ring, despite there being nothing in it financially for him. He did it all with a smile and the same personal touch that he and every member of his staff seemed to make a priority. I won't be buying jewelry anywhere but Sanders in the future. You shouldn't either. Finding great quality and a personal touch isn't easy, but Rick and company serve up both in spades. Highly recommend.
