About Me:

I'm passionate about exploring new places, finding adventures around every corner, and alternative lifestyles. Sailing wraps all of that into one package for me.

It's a life goal of mine to complete a circumnavigation, and I'm currently working to get all of the financials lined up to make that happen. I'm very comfortable with sailing (i.e. motion under wind power), but I recently bought a 23' Beneteau to work on all of the other skills that go along with boating (navigation, engines, electronics, etc.). Planning to sell it and move onto a liveaboard sometime in 2021.

I'm always excited to connect with other people in the sailing community, and I love teaching newbies how to sail. Feel free to reach out for any reason.

Sailing Experience:

7 years of Sunfish sailing on inland lakes at summer camps in middle/high school
Lasers, Hobies, and more Sunfish in college (non-competitive)
2 years racing as crew with Oakcliff Sailing (Swedish Match 40s, Shields, Classics)
3 years pleasure sailing 22' Sonars
1 year ownership so far of a 1988 Beneteau First 235
