The Story Behind First Coast Life

I’m a lucky man! I live in a place that I love … the First Coast. 

Glenn & New Rescue Dog "First Coast Callie"

I get to do the things that I love. Fate, maybe destiny, has placed me in North East Florida for a reason for the last 12 years. Every day since arriving from Colorado I have loved sharing through the lens the “beauty and fun” of this amazing place so many of us call home. 

A few years ago, I had a vision, an idea – to share all that is wonderful about the First Coast with as many as possible online. You know, really help people embrace our unique area. I wanted a “place” to showcase all that is positive, something people WANTED to see, read, share, and be a part of. 

A “place” to forge connections and bring our special community even closer together. 

I wanted to package that “feeling” and create a platform for locals to share their creativity, art, images, memories and stories. Celebrate all that they too find amazing and unique about First Coast Life.

Through this new site, I seek to uplift our creative community, locals and businesses as I feel they’ve also done for me.

It’s now time, to take my nearly 40 years (gasp) of tech/marketing/sales skills combined with my creative energy, to try and give back to the friends and place that I love and have given me (and Maddie) so much.

Welcome to FirstCoast.Life …

I am open to fresh ideas and welcoming of all the “First Coasters” that have a similar desire to promote our lifestyle in nothing but a positive way.

Most importantly, I want you to know this isn’t my magazine. It’s yours.

Thank you for hearing my story, and with my utmost respect, I hope to take this journey with you too, for many years to come …
