What I've done

Experience

Continuous passion

My Yachting experience began in 2017 when I first traveled to the south of France. Fast forward to now; I’ve worked on countless boats, in various countries, from doing daywork to taking on permanent gigs. I have proven to myself that I have what it takes to keep perusing this career.
I am forever a student of life and accept every lesson that comes my way with eagerness and an open mind. I aim to become an expert in my trade through the old-fashioned way, blood, sweat, tears and obtaining my 10 000 hours to prove my keep. My work off land has benefited my life greatly, in all aspects. I plan to grow further in this field and hope to pass down the mantle with eager, like-minded individuals. I am relentlessly positive, continuously grateful, and undeniably driven. A bad day at sea is at least one hundred times better than what you call a good day at the average workplace.
