I love Yachts, Yachting and everything connected with it! I was brought up by my grandfather, a high rank Navy Officer, who participated in the Baltic Sea during WWII.

Before making the yachting industry the center of my life, I completed my Master’s Degree in Business Administration, Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management and University Degree in medical field (rehabilitation & sport medicine). I then furthered my education when I entered the yachting industry, and have completed numerous maritime certifications.
