I’m originally from Coshocton, Ohio, a small industrial city in the Eastern “Appalachian” region of the state. After graduating from high school, I spent a few years in the Akron area attending the University of Akron and Kent State University, then relocated to the Columbus area for a job opportunity.  I spent the next 18 years in various Columbus suburbs then, during the winter of 2017, my wife and I, who both work remotely from home offices, decided cold weather and grey skies were not for us and started looking to move South. Our current home is sunny Port Saint Lucie on Florida’s Treasure Coast. We stumbled across Port Saint Lucie by accident and it has been a great place for us to call home.
