I joined the Brewer Yacht Sales team in the spring of 2019 working out of our Deep River office.
From an early age spending summers at Nauset Beach on Cape Cod, I realized that the ocean is where I was meant to be. That profound love for the water led me to a twenty-one year career in the United States Coast Guard, retiring as a Chief Petty officer in the fall of 2017.
My family and I have been living in Old Saybrook CT since 2015. Our house is very active with 2 young boys and a loving dog named Stumpy.
I welcome the opportunity to pilot mariners and help those new to boating navigate your boat purchase and selling journey.
