My wife Valerie and I have lived in the area for nine years with our three daughters. We are living and loving the Florida lifestyle. I was born in New Port News, VA, and proceeded to move all over the US and Germany. My father, of Estonian heritage, was a military commander so we moved more times than you can count on both hands. The beauty of growing up as a military brat, is the ease of communicating with various nationalities.
I was born and raised in the Columbus, Ohio area and am still a huge Ohio State Buckeye football fan. Living in the greater Columbus area offered some special opportunities for me. After being in banking for a few years, The Limited Stores Corporate Headquarters lured me away. I found my niche working with them as a Supervisor in their POS department, then later working as a Supervisor in the MIS/telecommunications department.
As a native Floridian, born just outside Gainesville, I have seen how much this state has grown and progressed over the years! After high school in Deland, and completing college, I relocated to Ft. Lauderdale. I expanded my marketing career with Crystal Water and earned their Sales Person of the Year Status.
