Jimmy Dean is the former publisher of SARASOTA and GULFSHORE LIFE Magazines and has lived in and helped chronicle this area of the Gulf coast for more than 35 years. Born and raised in North Carolina, he began coming to Florida regularly as a child, eventually relocating here at age 27 following “one hell of a good run” in broadcasting. He and his wife, Paige, have four energetic teenagers. When an attempt at retirement failed (Paige couldn’t handle FIVE children around the house), Jimmy purchased HARBOR STYLE in partnership with the SUN newspapers in 2007.
Liz Green is a graduate of Rollins College with a degree in English. Her love of words, storytelling and people eventually led her to HARBOR STYLE after nine years in Orlando. Well, that and the fact that her husband-to-be lived here. Liz serves on the board of the Fred Lang Foundation, the fundraising arm for Charlotte Behavioral Health Care. She loves coffee and flamingos. Her hobbies include reading, explaining the proper use of “it’s” and “its” to her co-workers, and spending time with the men in her life: husband Jason and sons Jackson and Brendan.
Paige Dean has lived in Southwest Florida for nearly 22 years and has a strong background in customer relations, management and technology. She holds an Economics degree from University of Virginia and an MBA in International Business and Marketing from Thunderbird, The American Graduate School of International Management. She is the mother to four extremely active children, and, oh yeah, she’s married to that Jimmy Dean guy.
