Hey all! I am a native of the Pacific Northwest and a lifelong lover of the sea. I grew up on crafts of all shapes and sizes, exploring the waters of my native Washington State and those of the Atlantic coast as well. I have crewed on charter vessels and sailed the Mediterranean, am experienced handling small wind-powered craft, and more recently, have served on commercial fishing tenders in Alaska. I cook, clean, fish, swim, free-dive, speak a few languages in addition to English, and tell a good joke. No sea is off limits, no boat job is too large or small for my curiosity to handle! I look forward to working hard, eating well, spending long nights on watch, and feeling the ocean under my feet all the while. Shoot me a message!
