Experience: 2000 ocean miles / 1000 coastal miles
I’ve sailed my own 21’ MacGregor on Lake Michigan for 3 years. I’ve recently sailed from Ireland to Iceland to Greenland, aboard a 39’ steel ketch, navigating the ice and fjords. I'm a writer and filmmaker and photographer. Much of my work centers around nautical and diving themes. I got into sailing specifically because I needed to know how to sail first hand for a project I was writing. Once I discovered the joys of sailing, I was HOOKED on sailing in it's own right. Whether it's Island hopping, longer passages, regattas, or anything in between, I've either tried it, or I want to try it! I also have a drone and love shooting drone shots of sailboats! Comfortable launching and landing my drone on the boat!
