J-Class Shamrock V & Hanuman

Since 1991, working on professional racing sailboats and Super Yachts, I have learned to juggle many responsibilities, from budget projections, housing contracts, large private cocktail parties and VIP dinner parties.  It is a passion for sailing and a pleasure to work in a wonderful industry.  I love all the different aspects of the work I do.
