Previous Experience

Matt has a wealth of sailing and life experience. He is an ASA certified sailing instructor and US Coast Guard licensed Master Mariner (25 Tons). His boating experience began in the waters of New England as a child and he has sailed extensively throughout the Pacific Northwest, Mexico, and Japan. Although he’s sailed in a variety of places, his favorite place, by far, is the New York Harbor and that passion shows on every tour.

Professional Background

Matt is a former US Marine officer and served as a platoon commander in Iraq and a company commander in Japan. His passion for energy security and the environment led him to a civilian career focused on innovation in environmental sustainability; from building renewable fuel plants in the Midwest to implementing energy efficiency projects nationwide. In addition to being a Captain, he is currently also a New York City School Teacher. His wife shares his love of sailing – they spend their long weekends cruising locally and winter breaks chartering in warmer places. In addition to harbor tours that reflect his awe for the scale and grandeur of NYC, Matt will also give you an unmatched education of the history and ecology of the city’s waterways that you will never forget!
