Are you from Jacksonville, if not where?

I am from Tampa via Gainesville. I spent 10 years in Gainesville getting my master's and working before moving to Jacksonville.

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

People! I like having an office environment I can go to when I get bored with working from home. There are some great people here and I look forward to meeting more of you.

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

With only minutes to come up with a costume, I dug through the trash (nothing too gross in it) and duct taped everything to myself to turn into a trash can.

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

I'd love to go to Spain to see Real Madrid v Barcelona.

A favorite quote?
"I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be." - Douglas Adams

I could talk for days about:

Music or anything tech, from computers to the latest gadgets.

Coffee or beer?

Both? I recently had a Hipster Speedball from Brew and it was indeed both in the same drink. Cold brew coffee and Southern Tier Double Milk Stout. Delicious.
