My Florida story began in 1969 when my parents left Baltimore, Maryland and moved us to New Smyrna Beach. They had been to the area on vacation and fell in love. My brother was born here and has never left. I on the other hand, had other thoughts. After graduating from Rollins College in near by Winter Park, I quickly put my degree in Communications to use creating large events in the motorsports industry. It would be this position that led me to Charlotte, North Carolina.
