Meet the Manager

I was raised in a boating family on the South Shore of Massachusetts and have many fond memories of marina life. I was lucky enough to sail to some of the best cruising destinations in the country including Cuttyhunk, Block Island, Newport, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. I learned how to navigate with paper charts, trim the sails to gain a quarter knot of speed and scrape off 12 layers of bottom paint. I retired after working twenty years in Public Safety which taught me teamwork, discipline and leadership skills that have proved invaluable through the years. Obtaining my USCG Captain’s License, running commercial vessels, being a Dockmaster, working in marine construction and being the General Manager Marina Bay Boston for three years, has taken me to the helm of Safe Harbor Pier 77 and Regatta Pointe, and I couldn’t be happier.  Nothing pleases me more than providing an environment that promotes family time and boating adventures that build memories, like mine, that will last a lifetime.
