Father, Husband, Coach, Author, REALTOR. I am your neighbor. My family and I have been living here for more than two decades right alongside you.

Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Raised in Roswell Georgia, I moved to Brevard in 1982 to earn my bachelor's in oceanography from Florida Tech. I served two years in the United States Peace Corps, Honduras Central America, in the fisheries program and am bilingual in Spanish as a result.
Following a year recruiting for the U.S. Peace Corps in Miami, I returned to South Brevard in 1993. I worked for newspapers as a reporter photographer. The Sebastian Sun, Vero Beach Press Journal, Florida Today, Hometown News, all have shared my bi-line.
I am also a published author, Where Hell Freezes Over, is one of my many published titles since I began my writing career.
I have also taught in Brevard Schools and I know the reality facing our teachers, because I have been there.
Now I am a local Realtor. I see the relationships between government, education and local real estate values.
My wife Donna and I have raised three wonderful children in this community and we want to give back. We have lived in the same house in Palm Bay since 1995 and we love our community.
It's time we elected someone who is actually from here, to represent this community in Tallahassee.
