I cook, clean, play guitar, and can fix stuff. I just helped deliver a sailboat from Santa Barbara to San Francisco. I've cruised Mexico including three weeks south from Puerta Vallarta to Manzanillo, then north to Isla Isabella and Mazatlan on a Halberg-Rassy 46. We weathered three days of 35 kt winds around Cabo Corrientes. Separately, I doublehanded a delivery from La Paz, Baja to Mazatlan. I am familiar with watch shifts and night sailing, GPS and radar, and have assisted on various boat repairs.

In San Francisco Bay, once or twice per week this past spring and summer I skippered an Erickson in up to 25 kt winds with a small crew.  I sailed on a Cal-20 in beer-can racing crew in up to 42 kts at Alcatraz in 2009. I daysailed my Cal-20 . I learned to sail by crewing a J-24 during 2003-5.

I'm gregarious but responsible. I am a PADI Divemaster, open water swimmer and sea kayaker. I have some knowledge of the stars and constellations, I am a decent cook, mechanic. Professionally, I develop software.
