When did you first fall in love with sailing? That would have to be during the time I spent as a student with Seamester aboard Ocean Star. I remember standing at the bow while on watch feeling that I'd found what I was made for. Before that I'd always loved the idea of sailing, but had never really sailed.

What's the best part of your job? Being able to do something I love everyday and share it with other people who might discover that they love it too.

Favorite place you've sailed to: Probably Tobago Cays or Saba, but I'd be happy pretty much wherever the wind and waves take me.

What's your definition of a salad? A mixture of various ingredients served cold, usually accompanied by dressing or some kind of seasoning. That being said, I don't think pasta or egg salad should be referred to the same as Caesar salad. They're too different to just label both a salad.
