In late 2006 I quit a mediocre career as a computer programmer, finished restoring my 1979 Downeaster 32 Bodhran, cut the dock lines, sailed out the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and hung a left. Thus began the cycle that’s been my life ever since. I sail until the money runs low, leave Bodhran somewhere safe and fly home to work. I’ve mostly worked on tugs hauling freight from Seattle to Alaska, but have also been working installing electrical systems and electronics on boats as well as getting the occasional photography gig.
Since leaving that fateful day, I’ve logged 100,000 sea miles, between the tugs and Bodhran, traveling the Pacific from the Bering Strait to New Zealand documenting most of it on this blog. Keep checking back for stories about my latest adventures.
