California, United States
I was born and raised in the Mid-West, but my early childhood dreams reached far and beyond my small but quaint hometown of North Branch, Minnesota. I knew early on that I wanted a career that allowed me to be outside in the elements of raw nature. To achieve the American Dream, I immersed myself and yet enjoyed an 18 year ride in Big Corporate America. From time to time my nights were interrupted by yearnings to be out on the open sea. I decided to follow my true north I'm fortunate to have family and friends that have exposed me to the yachting world and provided a platform to develop a second career. Having raced, cruised, and crewed for several charters and deliveries I am now a licensed captain and looking forward to the beginning of my second life. For I have found that for some, after having a taste of living on the sea, they are not fit to live on land. The American Dream is whatever brings peace to you.
