the charter yachting industry for over 20 years and has extensive cruising experience on
a variety of vessels worldwide. He holds a U.S. Coast Guard 3000 Ton Master’s License.

Spending extensive time in Italy he balanced his new world approach with the tradition of old world cookery. With over a decade under his belt he brought his talents to the Caribbean in 2009 where he has received public acclaim for his rustic yet refined style of cuisine while winning best entree at the Taste of St. Croix in 2010.
