Certified NauticEd Instructor
I have been a sailor since I was 8 years old, but in my mind, from before I was born. I hold a Masters Degree in Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. I love to apply my engineering training to the enjoyment and understanding of sailing – harnessing the energy of the wind into making the boat glide purposefully and seemingly without effort through the water. My passion is teaching sailing so that everything becomes a natural extension of the mind and body – you instinctively know what to do. I believe that if you want to be a sailor, you want to do it right – you want to be confident and competent. If that’s you, I’m here to help.
My secret specialty is teaching how to maneuver a sailboat in a tight marina under power.
