Sylvia Oliande

Sylvia Oliande

Sylvia began her career as a beat reporter for the Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles Daily News and The Signal, honing her storytelling skills to identify and craft news coverage that would resonate with readers.

Following a move to Central Florida, she shifted to public relations, rising to media relations director during more than a decade at Experience Kissimmee, a destination marketing agency in Orlando-adjacent Osceola County.

Sylvia then served as public relations manager for Give Kids The World Village, a charity vacation resort devoted to fulfilling the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses. Her social media efforts were instrumental in helping the nonprofit exceed its fundraising goals, while news coverage included People magazine, Good HousekeepingReader’s DigestParents magazine, and Scary Mommy.

A journalist praised for his versatility and deftness with copy, David worked as a staff writer for the Los Angeles Times, online producer for the Orlando Sentinel and copy editor for the Los Angeles Daily News after earning a double-major degree in journalism and filmmaking.

Next he spent more than 14 years with Walt Disney Parks and Resorts in a variety of communication roles, including PR, social media, and internal communications. David served as PR manager for Walt Disney World Resort, where he produced and hosted its first podcast, as well as the first podcast for starwars.com, in collaboration with Lucasfilm. He also served on the grand opening task force for Hong Kong Disneyland, led social media efforts for the launch of the Disney Dream cruise ship, and worked as senior writer for Eyes & Ears, a biweekly magazine for Walt Disney World employees.

At LEGOLAND Florida Resort, David led a team in developing strategic communication plans, crisis communications, and social media content, as well as PR stunts and grand openings, including live broadcasts, celebrity red carpets, and a satellite media tour. Coverage included USA TODAY, NBC’s “Today” Show, New York Times, Boston Globe, Fox Business Network, ABC News, NBC Sports, FOX Sports, and Parents magazine.

Since 2021, David has hosted Inland Empire Alive!, a cable TV talk show covering Southern California’s San Bernardino and Riverside counties. The award-winning program is produced by videoFP in association with the City of San Bernardino’s Inland Empire Media Group.
