'Sport is my passion'


My Story

I grew up in Zimbabwe but the day I finished school I flew to the UK to start a career in hospitality. Working in 5* hotels and restaurants gave me the experience I needed to join the elite cruise ship industry. During my time on board as a Sommelier, I fell in love with the ocean and all things maritime!
I studied Yacht Surveying in Southampton which provided the perfect springboard into the yachting industry. I love the dynamic, unpredictable aspect of yachting and thrive on interacting with the many different types of people that are involved in this ever-growing industry.
Sport is my passion and living on the Cote D’Azur, with my wife and two children provides the perfect arena to satisfy all sporting desires, including tennis, skiing, sailing and hiking.
