James “Larry” Taulbee is the founder of Closet Solutions Florida. Larry, originally born in Kentucky, grew up on the Space Coast of Florida in Indian Harbor Beach. He attended the University of Central Florida and graduated with a degree in Business Marketing. After graduation, Larry packed his bags and headed to Atlanta, Georgia to begin a job at a one-hour photo lab business. This job led him to find his career with Fuji Film in which he discovered and acquired all the skills needed to make Closet Solutions Florida the best business it can be.
With some encouragement from friends who owned Artisan Custom Closets in Atlanta, Larry jumped on board. His desires to be more involved in the community, meet and create opportunities for others, as well as take all he has learned from past careers made Closet Solutions the perfect fit! Larry’s vision for a people-centered business is based on 3 Success Keys, a great product, exceptional customer service, and great management. Closet Solutions Florida is built on these three components that are clearly demonstrated in not only the services provided but within the CSF team and clients reactions.
When Larry is not working, you can find him enjoying a sunset cruise with his wife on their boat after dinner at their favorite restaurants like The Bay. They have a Min Pin Chihuahua named Aubie, named after the Auburn University mascot, who is their whole world, especially now that all four of their children are out of the house. His creativity has still not run far, as Larry spends the rest of his free time behind the lens taking photos and working with music. He loves to attend singer/songwriter festivals, and yoga.
Larry’s favorite quote is “Life is 10% what happens to you, and 90% how you react to it.” This has become his life’s motto as it brings him from one career to another and speaks to his hopes of always exceeding others’ expectations and providing 100% satisfaction in all situations.
Bronwyn Landis is Closet Solutions Florida’s lead designer. A Fort Walton Beach native, Bronwyn graduated from Florida State University and returned home for nursing school. After sticking with her career as a nurse for five years, Bronwyn couldn’t shake the idea that she had not yet found her passion. Wanting to make a change, Bronwyn stumbled upon the job opening for CSF and it was a perfect fit. “Everything just fell into place, and I knew this is what I was supposed to be doing,” says Bronwyn.
Bronwyn’s love for design and organization with a side of OCD tendencies contribute to her passion for the world of storage design.
She recently joined an elite list of storage designers after achieving Designer Certification status from the Association of Closet & Storage Professionals (ACSP), the trade organization for the storage design industry. Bronwyn is the only certified designer in our area!
Bronwyn has been married to her wonderful husband, Mike, since 2013. Together they enjoy life with their four dogs and cat that always keep these animal lovers busy. When she is not out designing the perfect closet for our clients, Bronwyn enjoys boat days with friends and spending time with her pets. Her favorite quote is, “Everything happens for a reason.” which has truly become her life’s motto speaking to her career change and overwhelming passion for the design world.
With two years of experience, certification status, and a growing passion for storage design our time with Bronwyn is just beginning and we are so excited to have her apart of our Closet Solutions team.
Building and Installations Manager
Dan is Closet Solutions Florida’s Building and Installations Manager. Originally from Ohio, Dan moved to the Emerald Coast with his brother to be closer to family. The white sand beaches quickly became his new home and gave him the change in scenery he needed.
Dan attended the Newcastle School of Trades and received his Associate’s in Building Technology. His passion for working with hands and creating things to fit both needs and places drove his interest in joining the Closet Solutions team. After working various jobs at glass and auto shops, Dan has found his true calling in the world of Storage Organization.
His love for this job has only grown as he has interacted with multiple clients during installations. “The smile on their faces as they see the finished product is my favorite part, it makes the hard work worth the while and it is amazing to see my work the whole way through.” Coming from a background of never having a nice closet, Dan sees the true value in having something both personal and necessary to keep your everyday life organized.
Dan recently got married to his beautiful wife Sasha. They have two dogs Charlie and Maggie, who keep Dan on his feet. His adventurous spirit allows for numerous hobbies outside of his job with Closet Solutions.
Dan is a nationwide traveler, he has visited 37/50 states and just got back from a trip to Montana where he not only checked another state off the list but was able to spend time fly fishing.
When he is at home, Dan enjoys spending time tending to his garden filled with various flowers, citrus trees, and his favorite hot peppers.
Dan’s favorite quote is, “You make your own good time.” The meaning behind this quote is his life’s motto, people make their own happiness, if you are afraid to try new things or do not seek out happiness on your own then you are not going to achieve anything. Dan knows how to make his own good time and we are thrilled to have him as a key part of our CSF family!
