Originally from the Western New York area, I grew up around boats, starting off sailing small daysailers on smaller lakes in New York, to eventually sailing on Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. Sailing out of Buffalo harbor, some of the more memorable voyages were trips to Canada, and through the Welland Canal to Lake Ontario, and sailing entirely around Lake Ontario during the summers, mainly on Islander and Catalina sailboats, from 30 to 38 feet. After graduating from the University of Richmond, I moved to Florida where I have lived since, able to enjoy the boating season year-round. Married and with 2 boys, I have worked in the transportation industry, as well as owning my own businesses. In addition to sailing the east coast of Florida, and the Bahamas, I have owned a number of powerboats as well. These include numerous inflatables, a 19 ft Wellcraft ski boat, a 22 ft Pro Sport center console for fishing both inshore and offshore, and a Sea Ray 290 Sundancer express cruiser. With my background in both power and sail, I have the experience to assist you in your goal of either selling or buying your next boat.
