Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, my yachting career began in 2007. Over the years I’ve had the privilege to work on some of the world’s most prestigious yachts – learning, continuously upskilling, and adding value wherever possible. Through a consistent work ethic and being surrounded by brilliant leaders and mentors, I developed a reliable professional reputation within the luxury space and amongst numerous high-profile guests; resulting in an invaluable professional network. My passion for the industry stems from the forever changing backyard and the organised chaos. With the need for one finger on the pulse due to the exciting fast-paced environment, never a dull moment, never one day the same, always on your toes, always growing.
Seeing the world whilst doing what I love has been a dream. Along the way I formed unbreakable bonds and friendships that will be cherished always. The camaraderie and tight-knit relationships amongst the crew is a special relationship that only yachtie’s will understand and truly appreciate. My network and years of experience have moulded me into the person that I am today. I take away crucial life lessons, structure, discipline, professional and personal growth; all of which will be instilled into Virtual Pursers.
One of my many passions I’ve gained along the way is to protect the ocean. As a keen diving instructor, I’ve witnessed some unbelievable sights. Through causes I support, I want to show the beauty of the marine world and raise awareness of the damage we can inflict upon it. Besides this, I’m health and fitness focused; I believe that being on top form requires a healthy lifestyle and regular exercise to stay in shape, let off steam, and enhance professional ability.
This next chapter of my life with Virtual Pursers is beyond exciting. I’ve always been an ambitious person, constantly wanting to grow and to be the best version of myself. As an entrepreneur, I’d love to play a significant part in pioneering a path and future for ambitious like-minded individuals. Furthermore, my ultimate goal would be to cement the role of a Purser as a recognised shoreside solution, with Virtual Pursers being at the forefront as the innovative leaders who made this possible.
