It has been a dream of mine for quite a while to find a fun, kind, knowledgeable Captain and join him for long-term cruising adventures, whether sailing or on a motorboat. I grew up lake sailing in the Northeast of the US, primarily as a camp counselor in Vermont. During my Jr. year of college in Spain, I lived and sailed on a wooden sailboat (25 ft.) around the Mediterranean for a month with 3 other people. I got a taste of being part of an international sailing community and had some amazing (and even scary) experiences. Since then I have gone out here and there (on larger yachts 40-50 ft.), and was the cook on a trawler down the ICW in December, 2013. I don't mind "grunt work", having volunteered at the South Street Seaport in NYC for winter maintenance on their antique schooners & for "Friendship of Salem" ~ a tallship based MA. I've had a very "off the beaten path" kind of life so far and look forward to the new adventures awaiting me! I'm a keen maritime student, responsible, playful, passionate, humorous, creative, and very organized. I treat others as I would like to be treated ~ with kindness and respect. I speak my mind, follow my heart and am always trying to find ways to make life more expansive, fulfilling and FUN! I'm a bit of Bohemian (raised as an artsy child of the 60's & 70's), a bit glam, and a bit of a tomboy too. I'm very social (but appreciate "quiet time"), a creative cook & excellent provisioner (enjoy drinking wine and the occasional cocktail), speak Spanish, some French/Italian, LOVE nature & animals, foreign languages & cultures, all sorts of music & art, swimming, comedy (raised on Monty Python), and contemplating the awe-inspiring mysteries of the universe. The through-line in my life has been living and working as an ESL Teacher in The US, Spain, South Korea, Jordan, Italy, Argentina and Russia. I have also spent a lot of time in Alaska ~ a place which has forever changed my life. My professional background includes sales/marketing/promotions, design, film/theater production, artist's representation and adventure travel. If you have a chartering biz or would like to start one, I am well-suited to help with that. I hope to hear from you soon!
