I have worked in all aspects of the marine field for 25 plus years.
My roles have been as project manager, marine superintendent and captain on a variety of sailing
yachts and ships, built of both wood and steel. I have sailed to Antarctica as engineer on a
small(103') research vessel and led the restoration of a Herreshoff classic. I worked in
the commercial maritime world of tugs, freighters and tankers, in my youth.
have loved the sea and sailing my entire life and have been fortunate in being able to make it my career. I remain an active
sailor, participating in the Newport Bermuda race 7 times, the Marblehead Halifax race 5 times and sail actively in New
England and the Pacific.Sailing and life at sea is one of the few arenas where vocation and avocation
meet. I have been surveying full time for more than 10 years and regard
it as a natural progression from what has gone before.I bring my life's experience at sea
to every vessel I survey and feel that this experience brings great depth and a practical eye
to marine surveying.
