Your job description: 

Founder of Mobile Grip Gear Inc. My role in one word: Everything. No, I have an amazing co-founder who handles the financial side of the business and shares the operating hat. We're both fitness nuts, which works seeing as how we've launched a mobility apparel company, the first of its kind.  

Describe yourself in 3 words: 

Patient (new character trait). Persistent. Innovative. 

Are you from Jacksonville, if not where? 

I was born here, moved to Louisiana at 2 weeks which is where my dad was stationed at the time. We moved back to Jacksonville when I was 7.  So essentially yes, I am from here. I grew up in the Springfield/Eastside area and have lived mostly in the Downtown/Springfield area since (with the exception of my time in Tallahassee for college).

What's your favorite part about working in a coworking space in downtown Jacksonville? 

The obvious is that it gets me showered, dressed and off the couch (#winnumber1), which helps to focus my energy on the task at hand. The best part about it is being surrounded by other entrepreneurs and thought leaders, it's symbiotic almost.

What's the best Halloween costume you've ever worn? 

Devil in a blue dress. I think I may bring that back this year. 

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be, and why? 

Oia, which is a small town on the edge of Santorini in Greece. Google it. The pictures speak for themselves. 

A favorite quote? 

"Life begins at the end of your comfort zone." -Neale Donald Walsh

I could talk for days about: 

Politics. It's just one of those things that I will never get away from. 

Favorite place to grab lunch downtown? 

It's a toss up between Burrito Gallery and Indochine. It just depends on my taste buds.

Any special talents? 

I've been blessed with an amazing ability for storytelling. I should probably put that to use at some point.
