Owner and Founder, Mythic Gear, Inc.; Principal Communicator, Your Name Here Communications; blogger at IndigenousBoats.com
I've been involved with boats, marine issues, writing, and editing most of my adult life. I run Mythic Gear, manufacturing and selling America's lowest-cost drysuits for paddlesports and sailing. I also provide marketing communications, writing, editing, and publishing services through Your Name Here Communications. Previously, I was Communications Director and Membership Coordinator at Penobscot Marine Museum, and an acquisition editor for International Marine Publishing/McGraw-Hill, where I brought 40-odd books on boating and outdoor sports to life. I've written my own books on outdoor sports and survival and a series of children's books about boats. I've also done articles for boating, business, and outdoor magazines and for newspapers. I blog about boats from non-Western cultures at IndigenousBoats.com; I'm an enthusiastic canoeist (flatwater, canoe-camping and a bit of whitewater); a not-very-competent hobbyist boatbuilder; and I hold a Master of Marine Affairs degree from University of Rhode Island.
