Curt as the Operations Manager at Wet & Wild.

Fun fact: 

I worked at Wet n Wild, a water park that was located just off International Drive. Through high school and college I was a lifeguard and lead. After graduation from FSU I became the Operations Manager. During that time I implemented a number of safety protocols that became industry wide standards (WnW was the pioneer of the water park industry).
