Get To Know Your Local Sales Expert

How long have you been sailing? What classes do you race?

From dinghies, to offshore big-boat racing, to iceboats, I try to grow my sailing experience in as many areas as possible. For the most part I can be found racing Lasers, J24’s & T-10’s. During the winter I spend my time racing DN iceboats.

What’s your background in the marine industry? What do you like about it?

This is my first time working in the marine industry outside of coaching. My favorite aspect of the industry is the ability to meet other people with a similar passion as mine.

What keeps you coming back for more?

The constant pursuit of new adventures always keeps me coming back for more. The beautiful part about sailing is that the conditions and experiences are different every time you’re on the water.

What’s your favorite thing about sailing as a sport?

My favorite part about our sport is the adventure. Whether your offshore racing, sailing in big breeze, or on a road trip to an event, there’s always something new and exciting ahead.
