While attending college on the North Shore, I founded our collegiate Sailing program, and taught junior sailing during the summer months before graduating with a Business Degree in 2007. Now living in Boston I spread my sailing time between Frostbite Racing J24s on the Harbor, and summer racing in Marblehead, while escaping from work for deliveries along the East Coast and Bermuda.” firstname.lastname@example.org
