I practiced every day after work until I was able to carve full time. It hasn’t been easy. I moved to the Keys about 6 years ago and have been vying for a spot; now I have this spot in Islamorada. I came to the Keys for sales, for the volume of the people that drive through.
My dream is to have a small resort on an island somewhere, where there is some surfing and fishing. I just want to carve out the resort.
The bravest thing I have ever done is step out on my own and work for myself. I used to be an iron worker; there wasn’t a future in it. There isn’t a future in this either, but I work for myself, love what I do, and can do whatever I want.”
