Originally hailing from the North Fork of Long Island, I arrived in Hawaii the second time around in 2001 to work on learning about and protecting marine mammals and coral reefs in the Hawaiian Islands working with non profit organizations.  Eventually I discovered the joys of boat handling and sailing and have sailed the Hawaiian islands for 16 years with sailing adventures in Long Island and the Adriatic.  I’ve also worked extensively as a marine mammal advocate, dolphin research trainer, and educator.
