Paul has had a love for life on the water since a very young age – sailing, surfing, free diving and competitive kite boarding. Being near or on the water has always been of great importance to him.
In 2014 Paul began his carrier as a charter captain which has brought him internationally offering crewed charters in Sweden, Italy, Greece, Croatia, the San Juan islands, Maine and the Caribbean. In 2016, Paul moved to the Virgin Islands to work as a full time captain aboard SV Pelican, a 58 foot catamaran, offering all inclusive dive sailing charters in the USVI and BVI. Having the Caribbean right off the back deck made for the chance to learn many of the locations for free diving, kiteboarding, hiking and all the fun activities that make a sailing trip a great adventure. Returning to the Mediterranean every summer Paul continues to grow his local knowledge of each location with a focus on Greece and Italy. His passion for the sailing life style and the ocean is infectious and he brings both excitement and experience to every charter.
He is also a well recognized teacher of outdoor photography and lighting. Paul happily shares his love for boating and photography as a captain who also can teach high-level photography to guests onboard in beautiful and remote locations.
