Maritime Operations Teacher

I attended Renton High School and Western Washington University with a degree in Political Science. The outdoor program at Western was my second “degree” and I loved sailing/boating.   I spent 27 years in Hawaii where I was a sailing coach and I obtained my US Coast Guard license. I’m happy to back in Seattle with the maritime program in the Seattle Skills Center.
