JJ Waters

Director of Sales & Marketing

unnamed-2 After her first job as a mermaid at Gulf World (true story) JJ took off into the Real World to try to learn a little something that could actually provide a living.  After learning a little something, she joined a troupe of radio announcers and launched into a career in the exciting world of broadcasting.  She discovered that she was pretty good at telling people what to do.   (With their advertising. And marketing!) She’s not bossy, like that.  At least as far as we know.  BUT, being the mermaid that she was, (and a pretty good angler, if she must say so, herself) she yearned for the sea.  One day, this GUY came along and offered her a job. On the water. In a boat.  With a rod, and a pen, and a calculator, oh and a laptop) And the moral of this story is: if you want the most creative ideas and successful marketing campaigns, you need to call JJ. Or take her fishing.
