Q. When did you start developing a love of boats?
I have always been an outdoorsman. I love boating, fishing, surfing and diving. I have been an avid boater and offshore fisherman for about 20 years.

Q. Is there a boat sale that you were particularly proud of?
I have had many great sales, but one of the best was when i sold my 2001 Luhrs 32 Open. I sold it to a guy from south Florida who was a sports show producer for a Latin-owned company. He did all kinds of research and film documentaries, so it was kind of neat that my boat was going to be used for that and be on television.

Q. Where is your favorite place to go boating?
It would have to be anywhere in the Florida Keys. I love the beautiful water color, the reefs for diving, the great fishing and just hanging out in the great weather.

Q. When you're not working, how do you like to spend your free time?
I like the outdoors, yard work, golfing, going to the beach, hanging out with my family and playing with my grandson.

Q. What's one thing people would be surprised to know about you?
I used top be a paid softball player and travel all over the United Sates playing in tournaments. I played professionally for about 20 years and just stopped playing two years ago.

Q. What do you like most about working with POP Yachts?
I love boats, marinas and being around the water. This job allows me to have that.

Q. What do you think gives POP a competitive advantage over other brokerages?
It would have to be the technological advantage.
