Geoff and I are in the music business and manufacture recording equipment. I grew up in Florida and after living in Southern California, have returned back to Florida.
Geoff and I love to walk everywhere - and chose this home in Old Northeast for that reason. We walk to movies, restaurants and the many activities that downtown has to offer. We just love our location!
