He just graduated from Mater Dei High School where he was a part of the sailing team for all 4 years, serving as captain his senior year. He enjoys sailing his Laser,and fishing the local waters in his free time, and can usually be seen driving his family’s powerboat or his Whaler, and when he’s not doing that he can be found acting as bow man on the Choate 48 Amante.
