Originally from New York City,  I enjoyed everything the city had to offer including entertainment, music, sports, food  and so much more. I attended Cardinal Hayes H.S. in Bronx and University of Central Florida in Daytona Beach.

In 1999 I decided to relocate to Orlando Florida and met my wife Mrs. Elizabeth Palmer.

Together we decided to create our own business in the event industry launching Ocean Sands Events, which has become a leader in the Event Management industry 

Together we have raised (5) Children and are the Grandparents of (3) beautiful children. I continue to enjoy Motorcycle Riding, Boating, Fishing, Traveling, Cruising the World and Volunteer Missions.

Our Community

Ocean Sands Events has had an Amazing year partnering with community outreach and nonprofit organizations. We worked closely with the Iron Sharpeners, The Dream Center of Tampa, St Petersburg Food Bank and The City of Clearwater Beach. Our efforts have helped young children in the Tampa Bay area acquire new reading material and athletic equipment for their after school programs.  We also were able to prepare food for the less fortunate in St Petersburg and sponsored a Beach Cleanup Event in Clearwater Beach.
