I got started in the yachting industry about five years ago. When deciding on a career path it only made sense to stick with what I love.  I joined a 40foot catamaran in Cape Town and sailed the 7000 miles to Miami, Florida where I started my search.

How did you break into the industry?
When I was ten, my family moved from a large home in Las Vegas, NV to a small sailboat on which I lived until I was 18 years old. From there, thinking I was ready to try my hand on shore, I moved into the restaurant business on the water in Ft Lauderdale. After watching yachts sail by hourly and feeling the need to be at sea once again, I quit my land job of only six months and decided to be a professional yachtsmen.
