TEAM MEMBERS.

Adam Maxfield

Co-founder/Real Estate Agent/

King of the Gnar

Bio

I am a full-time real estate agent here in Brevard County, Florida.  My real estate team and I diligently work to advise our clients on buying well and selling for top dollar.  Our motto is to “Invest In Yourself and Invest In Your Community”, we mean it whether it is financial, physical or environmental.

I was born and raised in Garden City, Kansas.  A small farming community in the southwest corner of Kansas.  We spent every summer weekend and vacation enjoying the water, whether it was fishing for bass, water skiing or surfing in California.  My family has always celebrated water because we knew it grew our crops and made life possible.

Over the years I have lived in Kansas, Southern California, Colorado, Nicaragua and now Florida.  Water is a key factor in every environment and as a society we need to invest in our future.​

3 Question Snapshot:

What would be your superpower be?

Weather control!  I wish every day was a powder day in the mountains and 8 foot barrels in every beach.

Would you rather be Aquaman or Antman?

Aquaman, technology always fails and I love the sea!​

Why do you care about the Indian River Lagoon?

The Indian River Lagoon is the lifeblood of Brevard County.  Until the recent tech boom, tourism was the leading industry.  The Indian River Lagoon is slowly dying and without our help the local economy will suffer.  What better cause than to save our economy by saving the environment.  Without action, the manatees, fish and the local economy will struggle to survive.

Jeff French

Co-founder/Engineer/

Photographer

Bio

​ 

Jeff’s a multi-disciplined individual, plain and simple. Armed with a degree in mechanical engineering, general knowledge of startups, an artistic side, and a hunger for photography/videography, he works tirelessly between multiple jobs to provide his best. 

 

He tends to play the devil’s advocate in decision making and that shouldn’t be confused with his friendly and outgoing disposition. He’s always wanting the best decisions made upfront and for the better of the effort at hand.

3 Question Snapshot:

​ 

What would your superpower be?

Pinpoint accuracy a la Bullseye or Deadshot. Not super useful in many scenarios but definitely good for some bar tricks and general crowd-pleasing aesthetics.

​ 

Would you rather be Superman or Batman?

Batman. No contest. Tragic backstory, lots of money, cool gadgets, limitless source of arch-nemesis, and an affinity for doing all his work during the night. Also coincides with my most creative times.

​ 

Why do you care about the Indian River Lagoon?

I’m an environmentalist at heart. When Adam and Matt approached me about starting this whole effort, I was highly enthused about it. It pains me to see the lagoon in such decline and then the general lack of knowledge people have about the current state of it. If we can even make a small dent in restoration and preservation or even education about making our local environment better, I’m all in for it.

Matt Milhoan

Co-founder/Marketer/Ironman

Bio

By day Matt is a marketing professional with a background in working with local and national government organizations. However, his true calling in life was to be the next host of Discovery Channel's Cash Cab.

 

Armed with a generational mouth brow and an uncanny ability to tell a story, he is using his skills to help resurrect the Indian River Lagoon back to its former glory.

3 Question Snapshot:

What would be your superpower be?

Flying, hands down. I hate having to ask people to move every time I need to use the lavatory.

 

Would you rather be Aquaman or Antman?

Given the platform, I should say Aquaman, but I have got to show some respect to Paul Rudd. Antman.

 

Why do you care about the Indian River Lagoon?

I have lived in a lot of places in my life and I must say the Space Coast is one of the most dynamic. It seems that while this area continues to thrive economically, our greatest natural resource is in decline.

 

I believe there is a tipping point that we are fast approaching, where the river will become unfixable (within our lifetimes). I want to do everything in my power to facilitate a positive change.
