Brief Life History: Born &
raised at the beaches. Pre-real estate career included seven years in
marketing as a personal manager of recording artists. Clients included
Grammy® winner Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty. The industry heavyweights he
was in contact with read like a Who’s Who of the music business: managers
and agents representing The Counting Crows, Pearl Jam, Madonna, Dave
Matthews Band, Alanis Morrissette, The Dixie Chicks, Hootie & The Blowfish
and major executives including the Presidents of Capitol Records, Columbia
Records Group, and Madonna’s Maverick Records. After retiring from the
music industry in 1997 at age 27, joined CompuStaff Consulting Group, Inc.
as an officer and recruiter. Went on to become the number one recruiter in
the history of the firm. He became President of the company in 1999. When
not out selling real estate at the beach, I enjoy working on written
fiction and film projects.
Primary herp interests: Indigenous turtle species. Collected turtles since childhood. Have constructed indoor and outdoor enclosures up to 2,000+ gallon ponds. Have owned Common, Florida & Alligator snapper, softshell, Florida & Northern Red Belly turtles.
Why did you join the JHS and what do you want to get out of your membership? Its fun to meet other turtle geeks (ha ha).
What has been your favorite JHS experience? Finding a good home for the adult alligator snapper that I had up for adoption.
