Hi, I’m Tim Hamby. Welcome to my site. It’s everything a blog shouldn’t be. Unfocused. Inconsistent. Not very well promoted. Mostly just a bunch of stuff that I like, find interesting or worth digitally archiving for one reason or another, somewhere other than Facebook. But it’s also kind of like a desk drawer. You might not know what all’s in there, but if you sift through it, you’ll probably discover a few cool little knick-knacks.
My site is heavy on surfing and surf videos; abundant iPhonography (my tastes run to landscapes- especially beaches, marshes, waterways and tropical settings); numerous articles including many published works on surfing and action sports, marketing, advertising, branding and design; shots of my family and friends (married for 23 years with two daughters, one a sophomore at the University of Florida, the other a high school sophomore); some personal essays; a few interesting music videos… I think that’s about it!
Professionally, I’m currently a partner at Creative Kinds (www.thecreativekinds.com/), a boutique, full-service marketing, advertising, branding and design firm located in Jacksonville, FL (Ponte Vedra Beach). I provide marketing consultation, creative direction, copywriting and brand strategy. You can also see more of my creative work at TimHambyCreative.com.
I am also the owner of Jax Garage Floor Pros (www.jaxgaragefloorpros.com). My business applies epoxy paint and other decorative and protective coatings to residential and commercial garage floors. It’s a business that allows me to be physical and use my hands, and gives me a break from computer screens.
I also previously founded a very successful real estate marketing, branding and design firm (Renaissance Creative) which I operated for about 15 years (1996-2011); served as Executive Director for the Southeast Volusia Advertising Authority overseeing tourism marketing in New Smyrna Beach and the surrounding areas; Director of (Enterprise) Social Media for Web.com; and Director of Corporate Communications for HomeASAP, a real estate technology firm.
