Hi, Live in Hilton Head, SC now, but I grew up in Dublin, Ohio, went to school at Northwestern, and worked in Chicago until summer 2014. Entrepreneur and co-founder of DexaFit. Fortunately my role with the company gives me the freedom and flexibility to work anywhere (tech geek) and pursue other passions. In my Northwestern and Chicago life I was a linebacker, coach, and technology project manager. Now I paddle board, fish, and get humbled on the Jiu Jitsu and yoga mats in Hilton Head. Moved to the lowcountry last fall for its culture and lifestyle. No shortages of great restaurants, beautiful beaches, salt marshes, and nature trails to explore. Perfect place for both active lifestyles or anyone just trying to slow down their life a bit. Love to travel and explore anywhere with interesting culture, good food, nice people, and plenty to do outdoors. Confident you'll fall in love with the area. Everybody does. I can be available to tour you around if you like. Just ask. If you just want seclusion and privacy. It's yours. Looking forward to meeting you and making new friends.

Hilton Head, South Carolina

Beaches, gators and pirates

We’re going to go out on a limb and say this: Hilton Head is one of the best places for a family vacation in the whole of the USA. This little island might only be 12 miles by 5 miles wide, but it’s got everything you need for all the family: world-class beaches, tennis courts, fantastic weather and cultural trails exploring the best of South Carolina. Don’t miss the Coastal Discovery Museum, where you can get to know a ‘gator, the Harbour Town Lighthouse, for great views of the island, and Pirates of Hilton Head, where kids can sail the Black Dagger and learn to speak like a pirate.
