I soon progressed to warm water tug boat towing operations in Jacksonville, FL and by 1999 I was a salvage diver and captain of tow boats.
Throughout my previous experience, pleasure boats remained a passion. From 2000-2005, I worked as a marine mechanic repairing a variety of pleasure boats and motors.
In 2005, my interest expanded to offshore oil exploration where I advanced to Senior Engineer. My role provided for wonderful opportunities living abroad and domestically. For a number of years, I was happy to explore the Gulf of Mexico, Aberdeen, Scotland, and Dead Horse, Alaska.
By 2017, my love of Great Lakes beckoned again. I moved my family to a waterfront home in Michigan. Using a lifetime of maritime knowledge and engineering skills, I founded Tiny FloatHouse to continue to share my love of the water with other water enthusiasts.
