Member since March 2022
As a teenager, I began working on the fuel dock and then started working at a fishing boat and speedboat rental agency. Eventually I became a biologist and worked for the state wildlife agency. After five years I became a conservation officer and retired from that career. Upon my retirement I obtained my merchant mariners captains license and I’m currently running charters for fishing and sightseeing.
