Walter Pacheco started his nearly 20-year journalism career writing about the best of South Florida’s gourmet cuisine. He later focused on municipal politics and redevelopment at the Miami Herald for several years before moving to Orlando, where he helped launch the Orlando Sentinel’s first Spanish-language publication – El Sentinel.
After years covering Orlando’s Hispanic community, he helped build the Orlando Sentinel’s early breaking news team. He helped covered Central Florida hottest crime news, including controversial stories like the Casey Anthony case and the George Zimmerman story on the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Walter later switched gears and started writing about the region’s growing technology and social media industry.
Now, Walter is managing editor at Asbestos.com. He and his team of writers help encourage mesothelioma patients and their families by providing stories about clinical trials, innovations at cancer centers and the doctors performing those breakthroughs. In essence, his team provides stories of hope.
