Hi everyone! I am the founder and publisher of Central Florida Wire, LLC. I am a long time tech who used to work as a remote support agent for a large company. I also have a passion for writing. While working for my previous employer, I was asked to write for their tech support blog and while doing so, I realized how much I missed writing. I also realized the lack of real local news in our area. That is how Central Florida Wire was born. At first it started out as just me posting what I could here and there. But thanks to the continued support and admiration from our readers, we grew into something wonderful and I decided to dedicate all of my time to Central Florida Wire. It has been the greatest decision I have made in a long while. I am a Leesburg resident and have lived in the Lake/Sumter/Marion area since 1999. Aside from writing articles, I also enjoy photography, camping, biking, hiking, and boating. I am also in the process of finishing my first science-fiction novel that I am hoping to publish soon. I am the father of 6 wonderful children and the stepfather of another wonderful teen. I love meeting new people and try to interact with our readers and followers as best as I can. Be sure to follow me on Facebook and Twitter to find out what public events I will be at next so that we could meet face-to-face!
