I am a sixth-generation Floridian, born in Wauchula, and raised in Lake Worth. After serving 9 years in the US Navy as a Nuclear-Trained Electrician on submarines, I spent 27 years in the nuclear waste management field. In 2005, I earned my BS in Environmental Management from the University of Maryland University College, specializing in waste treatment, and concluded my nuclear career as the Operations Manager of a 2-billion dollar waste processing facility in South Carolina.My parents had retired near Amelia Island, and I had spent time in St. Augustine in my younger days. In 2014, I purchased a home in St Augustine, because I love the area and have family here. I earned my FL Home Inspector license and started a successful handyman business. This work helped me discover I had a passion for customer service and a desire to help folks reach their home ownership goals. It was a natural step to for me to become an agent, and join the Coldwell Banker Premier Properties Team.In my spare time, my wife Marla and I love to travel in our motorhome with our Chihuahua Harley. We also love to paddleboard and enjoy anything associated with water or the beach.
