Currently based out of Northern California- On the western slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, just alongside the banks of the So. Fork American River (right where gold was discovered back in 1849)
---MY JOURNEY TO THE MARINE INDUSTRY ---
It all started back in the early college years in San Luis Obispo. I was lucky enough to find a job at a sportfishing charter/ bait shop, right near the little CA coastal town of Avila Beach.
After a few years at Cal Poly I decided it was time to get a wee bit more salt in the blood. Sept 11th had just happened..Figured I'd follow my families footsteps and enlist in the US NAVY.
After training I hopped onboard the USS TAYLOR (FFG-50) as one of the 5 Navigators onboard (QM - quartermaster)
Travelling to the far sides of the world and back, learning the modern and centuries old forms of Navigation out at sea - by the stars! These are experiences that really are etched into my memory, and likely the reason why I've been so hooked-in to the nautical world and marine industry.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you did not do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bow lines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the tradewinds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
