Father Brian from Torquay and mother Joan from Liverpool. I was born and raised in Torquay Devon on the English Rivera in 1966. I lived my summers on the beach and was always out on the water every chance I got as a kid. As an avid sportsman, I did well in anything that involved a ball or speed on foot.
At the age of 18, I felt the need to get out in the world and in 1985, I joined HM Royal Marine Commandos, 30 weeks later, I received my Green Beret and Commando Flashes and went on to serve my country for just over 5 years.
During that time, I specialized as a landing craft coxswain and in 1987, I went to Poole in Dorset to take part in my LC3 course.
I remember one foggy winter morning a stunning boat came out through the fog and across my bow -- it was the first time I had ever seen a Sunseeker and It left a mark in my mind I'd never forget. I put my notice in to leave the Royal Marine two weeks later, but had to wait another 18 months to actually serve out my notice, which I did. I saw action in Northern Ireland in 1987 for 6 months with 42 Commando where I was a bodyguard for the Bomb Disposal Chief in South Armagh (Bandit Country).
In 1990, I went to live in Mallorca Spain and became the delivery captain for Sunseeker Mallorca based in Calador at that time which was where I first met Robert Braithwaite owner of Sunseeker International during a his visit to the island. At the age of 23 I was loving life working for Sunseeker..... Since then I have skippered several yachts mostly Sunseeker vessels, I am a PADI Dive master and have my IANTD Advance Nitrox Diver ticket.
I had visited Florida in 1988 aboard HMS Intrepid and had 5 days to enjoy South Beach with my friends. During that visit, I promised myself that I would come back to live in Miami Beach one day, which I am now doing although life took me 22 years to get back here-- I've never been to give up on my dreams, I've always preferred to live them.
Sales has always been natural for me, as I like to talk to & meet good people and have hence managed to develop great relationships with ease as a result.
