Being involved in the arts all of my life as a ballet dancer has taught me to have an appreciation of the arts and culture, and I only learned just recently the importance of that appreciation. To know the local, national and global “cultural climate,” is my goal as an entertainment correspondent. Just recently is Miami gaining more and more notoriety as a cultural icon, both nationally and internationally, for our fashion, travel, entertainment and nightlife. As such, we should gain more and more pride in the place we call “home.” In other words, festivals such as Art Basel Miami Beach and The Food & Wine Festival that take the world spotlight every year are held here for a reason. I look forward to visiting (and re-visiting most of) the places that I’ve come to know as must-see places to keep you “In-The-Miami-Know.” From the glamour of 1920s Miami to the population surge of the ‘60s, and Miami’s more recent international, financial, and cultural center status have given us residents much to be proud of. From Key Biscayne’s secluded, tranquil beaches to neighboring world-famous South Beach, you can find entertainment in every aspect of your day — and I intend to help you in that search!
