                          Year Purchased: 2002

                          About: Currently living in Austin, Texas, recently transplanted from Scottsdale. I oversee the investments of a family foundation and lead nature photography workshops.

                          Why St. Pete Beach:
                          It was literally love at first site. Flamingo Cottage and Palm Cottage are located on the same lot and I found them both while driving around the neighborhood on a business trip.
