My affinity for the ocean has been a constant throughout my life- from writing a paper on Leif Erickson in grade school to having extensive experience working and living on the water. I began my journey as a deckhand on a pilot boat and advanced to captaining my employer’s personal Bayliner 3988. I continued to expand my boating knowledge and learned to sail; that’s when my entire world changed as I could see the freedom it allowed.
For three years, I navigated the waters of the Columbia River in Oregon on my Catalina 25, honing my sailing skills. Once I felt confident, I sat for my USCG MMC. Obtaining that marked a pivotal moment, opening possibilities for venturing beyond local waters. The Caribbean became my destination, a dream realized after five years of planning and financial preparation. In Grenada, I acquired an Alubat Ovni, setting the stage for a season that fulfilled my childhood aspirations. Fast forward six years, and my wife Meagan, our feline companion Kalla, and I have sailed thousands of nautical miles across the Western and Eastern Caribbean. Presently, we find ourselves aboard our beautiful Moody 425.
Through these experiences, I understand that a boat is more than a vessel for transportation; it serves as a conduit for our dreams. Embracing this perspective, I have recently joined the Knot10 team. With a straightforward approach and a wealth of knowledge, I am passionate about assisting clients in navigating the complexities of buying or selling a boat and enjoying the practicalities of the maritime lifestyle you have been dreaming about. I am excited to apply my first-hand and acquired knowledge to help you in every step along the way.
