Yesterday Josh Cascio, reporter for FOX 13, My Fox Tampa Bay, stopped by the Fireleaf office to get our take on an image shared by Tampa Bay Rays reporter, Kelly Nash. Her selfie went viral when viewers questioned it's authenticity. 

While reporting on a story at Fenway Park in Boston, Kelly snapped a selfie and unknowingly captured a ball flying right by her head. After careful review we think the image is REAL!

Hey Everyone! A longtime friend of mine, is working to raise money for the St. Baldrick's Foundation, a childhood cancer charity funding the most promising research to help find cures for kids with cancer.

I urge to to please take a moment to donate a few bucks. Anything to help him reach his goal would be greatly appreciated by me and those who will benefit from the research the foundation is funding.

Thank you all so much! Please share! :)

Rather than send out Christmas cards to all of our clients at +Fireleaf this year, we planted 100 Longleaf Pine Trees in the Blackwater River State Forest in your honor.

Thank you all for another amazing year! We wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas!

My Story  - 
 
Something many people don't know about me... In college I majored in 3D animation, yup I thought my name would be on the next instant classic by Pixar. Instead my path lead me toward a career in design.

After college I had very little experience in web design... so little I failed my first 2 (post college) Intro to HTML classes. Determined to figure out simple code I started buying, reading, and referencing any book I could get my hands on.

In 2005 I was promoted to Webmaster (hated that title) at the marketing company I was working for. Just one year later in 2006 the website I developed won a Stevie at the American Business Awards and a Web Marketing Association’s WebAward for Outstanding Achievement in Web Development.

Whenever I doubt myself I think back to those days. It taught me to ever give up on my goals. Instead I use them to drive me further and I know I can achieve anything I set my mind to.

Here's a dorky picture of me with the Stevie... please note: this will most likely be the only time you'll see me in a suit.

"Last Light"

After an afternoon of fishing this small, roadside lake I was able to make this image with my OneS. Processed with Snapseed for Android.

We got our new spa cover from Affordable in just two weeks from the day we ordered it. It arrived in perfect condition and the quality is so much better than our previous cover. Thanks Affordable!

This place is great. I come from Boston where butcher shops and marinated steak tips are easy to come by. Here in Florida, Harr's Surf and Turf is by far the best I've found.
