Nationality: United States
Currently based in: Vancouver, United States
Looking for: Worldwide opportunities
Experience: 0 ocean miles / 190 coastal miles
I'm planning to retire spring of 2023, my ultimate goal is becoming a live-aboard blue water cruiser. But first, I'd like to crew with more experienced sailors to gain experience and hone my skills. While I'm a new sailor, my skills and experience in advanced first aide, electronics troubleshooting, information technology, institutional food preparation, and construction background are a great basis for a solid crew member. I'm an easy-going, respectful person who enjoys collaborating with people. I'm a quiet, patient person. Humor and helping are how I connect with people; and I have a deep passion for learning and gaining practical experiences. Having had 2 tours in Iraq, I'm no stranger to austere, communal living, so I respect boundaries and understand living light.
