My passion for designing boats is the collective sum of experiences and ideas that I have gained since crewing on yachts in the med in-between architecture school. I learned about the basic problems in yachts from crew efficiencies to owners frustrations and how they function interior to exterior. Having no formal education about yacht design, I began to ask very basic questions about why the designers and engineers would make things this way or that way. In that regard, I feel free of many constraints. I am wrong about many of the things I design but what is the fun without breaking rules!
