In 2017, my wife, our twin daughters, our Springer Spaniel and I moved into our newly purchased home in Cape Coral on SW 17th Pl. We had been living in Palm Harbor, FL (just above Clearwater) for the previous three years. We are originally from the West Chester, Pennsylvania (Philadelphia suburb) area but made the decision in 2013 to head south and live near the beach, with no regrets!
I have spent the majority of my working career as VP of Full-Service Operations for a 32 unit c-store, gas and full-service car wash corporation located in the Philadelphia market. I am currently the sales manager in Florida for Mark VII Equipment. My wife, Liz, is a school teacher for the Lee County School District, one of my daughters is a Florida Gator and the other is soon to be a Florida State Seminole.
In late 2018, I became aware of a large, high-density apartment complex that was going to be developed in the middle of our single-family home neighborhood and made the decision to organize our neighborhood to make sure our interests were heard at city hall and with the developer! As our organization grew, we found we had common interests with our neighbors in the four corners neighborhood and mutually made the decision to merge our community groups, forming what is now the Southwest Cape Coral Action Committee, aka SWCCAC.
My hobbies are volleyball, biking and barbequing. My favorite teams are the Philadelphia Eagles (still a season ticket holder) and Phillies along with UF and Penn State football.
