Originally from the Bahamas, he has worked and lived in Southeast Asia, Europe, and the Americas, and has now settled outside New York, where he works in the shipping industry. He came to know Bermuda's maritime history during a 15-year, 100-vessel yacht-delivery and racing career, and has numerous helpful sources there.
