I discovered my passion for boating and the ocean while sailing through the Islands of Tahiti and Hawaii. I spent eight years living on the north shore of Kauai where I was working on the beautiful Na Pali coast running snorkel and dive charters. After making my way to Santa Barbara, where I worked on sailboats doing day cruises, I obtained a USCG Master 100ton license. Shortly afterward I decided to pack a suitcase and head for the Carribean where I began living and working worldwide on large private yachts of up to 220ft. While spending a season in Norway aboard a 164ft private yacht, I met my future wife. We left the industry in January 2013 and moved to LA to starting a similar but, new career. More recently I launched an Estate Management company and have been working as a private/charter boat Captain, while I continue to grow my business. I love being out on the water and sharing the experience with new and interesting people! I look forward to hearing from you.
