Hi, I'm Jack Shell

A lifetime in broadcast media makes me uniquely qualified to tell your story. 

It's great to meet you!

A Little About Myself

When the opportunity presented itself to switch gears and join the Otter Public Relations team, I could not have been more excited. A natural curious intellect allows me to get to know each and every one of my clients beyond the surface. I want to know why you are the way you are, I want to share that message with anyone who will listen, and I won’t stop until they hear about you.

I am married to my best friend Karen, and we reside in St. Petersburg with our two cats Libby and Oskee. Originally from Peoria, Illinois, I have lived all over the United States — most notably, Nashville, Tennessee for ten years, where I worked for WSM Radio (the home of the Grand Ole Opry) as creative services director and lent my writing skills to their list of successful advertising clients. Other stops along my life journey include Detroit, Miami, Indianapolis, and Louisville. When I’m not telling the world about you, I enjoy keeping up with current events, running, biking, gourmet cooking, all kinds of music, movies, theater, concerts, comedy, sports, and travel. Favorite destinations to date include a train trip across Italy and a week at an Airbnb in Havana, Cuba.
