Question of the Day:
Every weekday morning, I post a question
for my followers. The goal is to start a discussion around a unique topic, and to help others meet new people.
In July 2012, I started a monthly photo scavenger hunt to encourage people to snap photos with their mobile phone. The hunt has an amazing following and the group is incredibly inviting. I just started a new page for #TheHunt
to help others join in.
: Publicly launched in February 2013, Photospark is a photo game that challenges friends to one-up other people's photos. See the launch here
This is a spinoff of #TheHunt. It is a daily photo or video idea. The goal is to get people to start noticing smaller details in life. I started a page for the #DailyHunt
, so if you're interested, check it out.

I'm working on curating a few very niche circles to share. If you think you belong in any of these circles, let me know and I'll review your profile to see if you fit.
- People who share stuff you'd see in a Maxim or Men's Health magazine. Cars, sex, gadgets, men's fitness, men's fashion, etc.
Original Content - People who create unique original content. Topic doesn't matter, as long as it's original.
Lifehacks - People who share tips for winning the game of life. This can include tips for productivity, work, family life, etc.
WTF - People who share content that blows your mind. This circle is like walking into a circus sideshow.
Snowboarding - Professional snowboarders, people who cover snowboarding events, or just snowboarders who like to carve fresh pow.
Memes - People who share the newest memes.
Music Videos - I loved MTV as a kid, and this circle is a way to bring that back. The people in this circle share one or two (or more) music videos a day. A great way to discover new music.
Howard Stern - Stern Superfans or members of the staff. I don't think any of the whackpackers are here yet, but if they are, they'll be in this circle. This circle will also include show regulars. 143!
GTD - People who are active in the teachings of David Allen's Getting Things Done. This circle is predominantly about productivity.
War Eagle - Auburn University alumni, fans, and pages
Swimming Pool Pros - Filled with poolboys
Everything else about me - the long version:
My 7-year college career is pretty unique. I attended Auburn University (War Eagle!), Jacksonville University, University of North Florida, and about a week at Stetson University. All of that to major in music education, which never ended up happening.
I now own a very successful swimming pool service company in Orlando
, but have worked as a financial planner for Prudential Securities (Series 6 and 7), and worked in the medical field with Blue Cross Blue Shield, where I ended up getting about 600 of my closest friends fired by creating a computer program that completely automated claims processing (2000 - VooDoo).
I also earned my real estate license, then real estate brokers license, and went on to start my own real estate firm. During the early to mid 2000s, I explored blogging and alternative marketing, and was asked to speak at different real estate events, and went on to open my very own social media company, where I offered social media coaching, and web/blog design.
One passion I've had as a child is photography, and I ended up really falling in love with real estate photography. I enjoyed it so much, I opened the doors to Orlando Real Estate Photography
in 2005, and we've been lucky enough to have been hired by mostly large marketing firms for high-end condos and luxury apartments.
I love meeting others, which is why I post my phone number. If you're ever near the Orlando airport and want to grab a drink, give me a call or text me. 407-729-9695.
