About me

After finishing school, I dove head first into the yachting industry. Having now spent 10 years in the industry, I remain hungry and eager to learn and improve wherever possible. Throughout my time in the industry I have been fortunate enough to have established a non profit company teaching mental wellbeing to impoverished youth, which is where my off time is spent mostly. I have had extensive experience in some "different" locations such as northern territories of Australia and south east Asia. This has taught me to adapt and overcome in the harshest of environments and crack on with it.
