After writing a spec article about emerging best safety practices at a marina, The Log Newspaper published my work and hired me. It was the beginning of a 20+-year career in the boating industry. Covering all things boats, I worked my way up to become the bureau chief for two SoCal counties and developed a love of yacht racing.
For the past six years, I have lead PR efforts for the Newport to Ensenada International Yacht Race. My press releases are often published verbatim, alongside photos.
