Publisher & Contributor
Dex landed in the Burg in 2006. Relocating from New York City, he and his partner saw the potential in St. Pete’s future as a highly desirable place to live.
Launching I Love the Burg in 2009, he began to chronicle the city’s progress first-hand. 10 years later, thousands of followers, and a popular sister blog, That’s So Tampa, now make up what is the largest independent social media network in Tampa Bay.
As an active member of the community, Dex has a vast network of contacts and affiliations while maintaining his role as a lead cheerleader for the Tampa Bay region.
