First class customer service is the hallmark of my career and how I serve my clients. I learned this from my grandfather and our 3rd generation family business. Born and raised in sunny Rhode Island, my relevant business background is in marine finance, residential & commercial real estate lending, & yacht management. There is a photo of me at age 5 with my 2 brothers in an 8' gaff rigged Dyer Dow sailing dinghy in Newport Harbor, RI. In the teen years I crewed on Lightning Class sloops at the local yacht club. My first job out of college was as a broker with Howard Keeney Yachts, a Uniflite Powerboats dealer in Warren, RI. I have held a USCG 100GT Master Power/Sail license for 30+ years. I have served as a delivery captain for Hinckley Yachts and Pearson Yachts, from Maine to Florida, Eastern & Western Caribbean. Our Narragansett Bay is its own little corner of the world, and Newport is its world-known yachting center. In summer there is no better place to be.
