He was the third generation on his mother’s side to graduate from Morse High School in Bath, then went on to receive a B.F.A. in Drama from NYU’s Tisch School. He appeared in several plays in New York, most notably as Julius Caesar in “Julius Caesar” at Theatre for the New City and as Herb Shuttle in Kurt Vonnegut’s “Happy Birthday Wanda June” where he had the honor to perform for and meet the author.

In 2008 he became chief mate on Ketch Angelique, a 130 foot gaff-rigged topsail ketch out of Camden, Maine. During this time he earned his license as a 100-Ton Master of Sail, Power, and Steam upon Inland Waters. In 2011 he became captain of M/V Quicksilver, a 36 foot passenger vessel with year round service to Islesboro, Maine.
