Having been born and raised in New Jersey, I have been on the or in the water most of my life. Growing up, my family always had a boat for fishing, water skiing and snorkeling throughout the Jersey shore and Long Island Sound, including the many other New York Metro waterfronts. As my Dad moved up to bigger boats and became passionate for fishing, I was always onboard either rigging baits, handling the helm, or cleaning! I developed my real deep-sea fishing skills as full time members of The Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, Florida. It was then that I realized I wanted to pursue my passion for boats!
I worked diligently leading our family business for 30 years and ensured that every vacation was spent on the water, in many locations on the North American Continent, USVI and BVI’s. After selling the business in 2008, I earned my USCG 100 Ton Captain’s License and set sail with my life partner living aboard a 76’ Rayburn Motor Vessel. We spent the ensuing 5 years cruising the U.S. Eastern coast, Florida Keys and most of the Bahamas.
I attribute my most endearing relationships and extraordinary experiences to being an avid and knowledgeable boater. I look forward to developing greater “boating” relationships while sharing my wisdom and knowledge in helping others buy or sell their boats.
