Currently based in: Halifax, Canada
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 1674 ocean miles / 500 coastal miles
I have been sailing since childhood on the North Atlantic coast, mostly in dinghies. I I have a can-do approach to life and have extensive experience problem solving and team building. I freely share what knowledge and skills that I have and quick to be clear on what I do not know. I am fully vaccinated for world travel and I have no health concerns and enjoy boat work. I have a strong mechanical aptitude for solving boat problems as the arise unexpectedly. My shore based role has been as a team builder and problem solver on complex global computer systems. I look forward to speaking with you about the adventure that awaits.
