I am 30 years old, clean cut and energetic. I am seeking employment in a positive environment focusing on the pleasure of the boat owner and his guests during their time on board. I have traveled extensively to areas including Canada, the East Coast of the United States, the Bahamas, as well as the Majority of Western Central America. During that time I have been fortunate enough to catch every species of billfish in the world.
