I grew up the furthest from yachting that you can imagine-a farm in small town Indiana. However, It was my drive to succeed, learn, and thirst for adventure that led me to a career in yachting. My path into the industry was a unique one that started in Beaufort, North Carolina, where I now claim as home base. Since my start in the Carolinas I have had the opportunity to navigate many different seas-the entire Eastern seaboard of the United States, Cuba, The Bahamas, the Caribbean, the Great Lakes, and the Inland Rivers of the United States. While I most certainly take pride in my ability as a motor yacht captain, I also have a soft spot for the young adult and especially those that come with questions. As a former chemistry professor, I love to teach and I am always looking to find a moment, or many, to share what I have learned along the way with others and look to encourage and inspire those that dream of a career in the yachting industry.
