You may have seen him on Bravo's hit yachting TV series "Below Deck". He was sent onto the show to help fix the deck department before it all came crashing down LITERALLY.
EJ has had a passion for yachting every since childhood, it has been his life ambition to cruise around on the world, and once he turned 21 he did everything in his power to make that possible.
When he first joined the yachting industry 8 years ago, he found that there was really no valuable yachting information on the internet. He looked for anything to show him the real crucial aspects one needs to know to excel in a career as a yacht crew member, with little success he found nothing substantial.
So he went about it and made it part of his life mission to help people discover this amazing career choice, and to dedicate his time to aid others on their pursuit in finding their place in this industry.
He remembers how hard it was for him to break into the yachting lifestyle; the mental change that one must go through to adapt to the new work schedule (no more 9 - 5) and the skills, terminology, seamanship and networking functions that are so crucial from separating you from the 1000's of other candidates looking for their first break into the industry.
EJ has experienced the yachting lifestyle from so many angles; from working on a super fast 120ft gas turbine jet yacht in the mediterranean, to cruising the Bahamas and Caribbean on multiple charter yachts ranging from 150ft - 190ft, to working on as big as a 248ft yacht cruising the San Blas Islands. He has worked with crew from all walks of life, and he has hired, trained and coached many crew members into positions they now cherish.
