I fell in love with sailing after an overnight captained charter of the Thirty Thousand Islands of the Georgian Bay in Lake Huron, Canada.  The ability to harness the wind to quietly travel to picturesque destinations appealed to me.  I took my first ASA course, Basic Keelboat Sailing, in 2002. From there I progressed to Basic Coastal Cruising, Bareboat Chartering, Coastal Navigation, and Cruising Catamaran. In addition to Lake Huron, I have sailed on and around Lake Michigan, Lake Superior, the Florida Keys, and the British Virgin Islands. I thoroughly enjoy cruising. Few things are finer than watching the sun set after anchoring in a scenic cove.

I decided to share my love of sailing with others in 2007 by becoming an ASA Instructor. I find it rewarding to guide my students through the process of gradually gaining sailing knowledge, skill, and confidence.
