About

Why do you sail?

Self-reliance and freedom of movement

What do you enjoy about working at OCSC?

My comrades and helping others achieve their salty dreams.

What's your sailing background?

First time on a sailboat in 2009 here on SF Bay. Bought a boat later that year and moved aboard. Lots of "doing it wrong" all over the bay ensued. Mostly alone so no one could witness my incredible screw-ups.

When you're not sailing, what can we find you doing?

Backpacking, biking, running, diving, and working on sailboats.

What are your favorite sailing published material of all time?

  • Books: Anything by Nigel Calder, the Pardeys, or the Roths.
  • Movies: Master and Commander, The Riddle of the Sands
  • Songs: Any good sea shanty'll do
