My early days of fishing were spent on the drift boat “Helen S” out of Hillsboro Inlet, Florida. My brother Ed was a mate for 14 years in total with many of those years being under the watchful eye of Capt. Dan Garnsey and Capt. Bud O’Brien. I spent many days fishing aboard the drift boat and that really was the beginning for me.
Most of you do not know this, but I was in the music business for several years when I was younger. I owned a nightclub "The Ambassador" at the age of twenty four for several years. My club was a spot featuring the who's who of music at the time. Reggae, rap, industrial, alternative, punk and rock were the music types. Some of the bands who performed at my club included Agent Orange, the Spin Doctors, Fear, Bad Brains, Inner Circle, Consolidated, Yellowman, the Wailers, Molly Hatchet and many more.
My art career started at an early age as I spent much time in drawing and painting classes. My mother was very artsy and loved crafts so I did grow up around the arts in a sense.
I spent years trying and enjoying to learn and practice different types.
