I chose this image to be the avatar for my website because it represents me and my interests. Sailing has been an integral part of my life for many years. I grew up on the waterfront of Narragansett Bay and it is there that I learned how to sail and race and win. Sailing has continued to be a large part of my life as I have gotten older. I’ve transitioned from racing to teaching racing to my students during the summer. However, if I ever get the chance to race again, I’ll take it in a heartbeat.
