Biography

I ain't no 'Crocodile Dundee' but, born in Australia I grew up in a lovely beach town called 'Bowen'...best Mangoes in the world! A 13 year banking career preceded the start of my Sport Fishing Travel business, bringing global anglers to the Great Barrier Reef chasing giant Black Marlin and to the outback for Barramundi and associated Aussie bush adventures. My trips to the outback and the Marlin fishing certainly involved a bit of 'Croc Dundee' action.....(another story maybe). Doing business in the USA made opportunity for a move here in 1993. Today I am a Sales Professional specializing in sailing experiences with an emphasis on team building and rewards. In San Diego I manage the famous 139 Ft Yacht 'America' for day & evening sailing & dining experiences and amazing year-round Gray Whale & Blue Whale excursions. In Chicago two of Dennis Conner's former America's Cup race yachts...Stars & Stripes and Abracadabra are being set up on the downtown waterfront for fantastic team-building & corporate entertaining events commencing May 15, 2015. These are the only "pair" of these style yachts in the USA. Every day is a "race" opportunity in Chicago. They have spent the last 10 years operating in San Diego. In San Francisco I have the "USA76"...the "only" America's Cup yacht in that city, and billed as "the most modern AC yacht available for public access anywhere in the world". Plus 'TOMCAT', a 40 Ft ProSail professional racing Catamaran named after the late Bay Area America's Cup sailor Tom Blackaller. This Cat is billed as "the fastest sailing charter yacht in the world". My ambition is to create "once in a lifetime" events for anything yachting related, groups and individuals.
Specialties: corporate incentive, team building, VIP entertainment, individual & group thrills and Xtreme sailing.
As for my writing......life's experiences are many, some more exciting and noteworthy than others. My stories will be true accounts of often 'extreme' life experiences.

This is a true story. It tells of a life and death situation that I found myself in while visiting Kenya in 1987. The journey is trepidatious, the outcome life-threatening. An African native's dress becomes a 'sail' with 4 lives in the balance. And there's 'adrenaline'.....you find what you are truly capable of when your adrenaline is pumping hard.
