 grew up in Winter Harbor. I remember being on a boat at 3. When I was 15, I bought my first boat. I have many relatives who were and are lobstermen. I’m at least the 4th generation, maybe more. I was taught by Dad and Grampie. I have a beautiful 5 yr old angel Robin and beautiful fiance Carrie who are my whole life.

My boat name is my cousin Adam’s basketball number. He died in a car accident when we were both 17.

I joined the Co-op in 2000. I like lobstering because I’m my own boss and it’s a challenge to try to find ’em. It’s hard work, but we all chose to do it. I’m also a baseball coach for a junior high team with back-to-back undefeated seasons.
