About JR

Born in New Jersey but raised in Florida, JR has had a diverse path to make him the man he is today.

Entrepreneurial from childhood it was no shock that he would follow that path as an adult. JR founded Red Wall Marketing in 2009 which was acquired in 2024 in a 7 figure deal. He is now Co-Owner, CMO & Director of Product Development for Outbound.com.

In 2010 he released his first book written to help business owners avoid becoming one of the 80% of businesses that fail.

Leading up to that JR always thought he would be a police officer or pastor.

Having been a police explorer with the Miramar Police Department for 6 years and eventually leaving the program as Commander (highest rank). Ultimately he did not pursue this career and went to Bible College at Calvary Chapel Bible College where he graduated with an Associates in Theology.

His ministry experience includes being a youth leader and eventually assistant pastor.

Although deciding not to go into full-time ministry, as an ordained minister, he finds that there are an abundance of ways to serve without an official role in a church.

He is currently a mentor for entrepreneurs at Tampa Bay Wave, as well as the University of South Florida.

A mentor for Think Big For Kids, helping lower-income kids to better plan for life after school.

And Lead Organizer for Tampa Bay Startup Week.

JR resides in Tampa, FL with his wife and 4 kids. He continues to grow his agency by helping businesses grow, and always looking for new ways to serve people in the community.

He is available for consulting and speaking on a limited basis.
