Personal Info

Some people say I am crazy. I will leave that up to you to decide. 

I am a passionate father of 3 successful boys. I've coached 32 teams that my sons were involved with, from robotics to football. I am a sports-a-holic. You can find me at just about any major championship game.

I live in Tampa on the water and enjoy the outdoors and boating.  Other hobbies include tennis, walking and biking.

Charitable Causes I Support

The Spring

The mission of The Spring of Tampa Bay, Inc. is to prevent domestic violence, protect victims, and promote change in lives, families, and communities.

Since our founding in 1977, The Spring has provided sanctuary and services to more than 60,000 abused adults and their children.

MUST Ministries

A powerful, volunteer-driven organization, MUST addresses the basic needs of individuals, families and children with facilities in the Cobb and Cherokee counties and programs in numerous other counties. MUST brings people of many faiths together to respond to God's challenge to minister to others with compassion and love, without judgment of the beliefs, background or circumstances of those who serve or are being served


If life were a fairy tale, no child would be abused…  

The cold reality is that many children are abused.

That is why the focus of SafePath is the child: bringing together, in one centralized location, the members of the community who can help provide the support the child victim and the family need to have their opportunity to live happily ever after.

Alina Lodge

Our mission at Alina Lodge is to provide affordable residential treatment and care, both as a first-stop facility and for the chronically ill and relapse-prone alcoholics, drug addicts, and those with dual disorders, and to provide a strong complementary family program.

We aim to continue to specialize in clinical treatment for chronic/relapse prone patients who are experiencing life-threatening and/ or serious consequences due to addictive behaviors.


Get in Touch

I'm currently interested in:

  • Board of Director Inquiries
  • High Growth company consultations
  • Possible Pro-bono consultations for bootstrapped, aggressive companies in the Tampa Bay Area.
While I believe there are many wonderful charities around the nation, I am personally vested in the ones listed on this site and don’t have the bandwidth to take on any more projects at this time.
