Personal Jeff

I love staying active and being outside, and living in Tampa Bay makes it easy to do lots of both

Q. HOW DO YOU SPEND YOUR FREE TIME?

A. I love listening to live music, being outside and staying active whether skiing, biking or swimming – all things I get to do plenty of living in Saint Petersburg. I especially enjoy riding my bike through St. Pete and watching all of the different things going on around town.

Q. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE LOCAL EVENT YOU PARTICIPATE IN?

A. Gasparilla Music Festival. It’s two days of great live music on the downtown Tampa waterfront in the middle of March, all benefiting a great cause. You can’t beat that!

Q. WHO IS SOMEONE YOU ADMIRE AND WHY?

A. My mom and my dad. My parents taught me the importance of doing your best, having integrity and treating others with compassion. There aren’t many lessons in life that are more important.
