What Passion Helped Me Create

My company FireflyEPE means a lot to me. It is my way of giving back to the industry that I care about the most. I really care that high schools are fun and memorable. Through the years I have heard and said many complaints about the education system. I have heard many students complain about events like prom and homecoming that took sponsor months to plan. I have been a complainer just like everyone else until I got involved. Now I know the work that goes into these events.

Firefly Event Photography & Entertainment forces me to put those complaints away and just do what I love to do. When I first started Firefly there were times when I would wish I was a doctor or a lawyer. You know, daydreaming that someone would look at and say “he accomplished something.” Well too bad world. I am a guy that loves to deliver great products to high school students and have fun while I do it.
My wishes for Firefly are simple.

•I want to deliver our product now and have those kids be on our website in 20 years thankful that our product existed in 2013.

•I want to connect with schools that see the value of what we are doing.

•I want to connect with students that are frustrated with the same old thing while the world around them continues to change and develop cool stuff.

•I want to make life easier for the event sponsors and planners.

•I want parents to be thankful that they can get their kid’s images without pulling out the wallet again and again.

I left my teaching position in 2012 so that I could positively affect more students. I have a personal challenge of helping 10,000 students a year. Because of that personal challenge, I couldn’t see myself sitting at another job and saying “see I told you things were bad in education.” I believe my passion for giving something great to high school students will continue to catch on and FireflyEPE will be the premier company in Florida delivering great event photography. Since I have developed the FireflyEPE system I have found the one thing that gets me excited about giving my all as much as teaching and coaching did. I love what I do and I will continue to work extra hard to deliver great things to high school students.
