Adam began sailing as a boy off the beaches of Port Townsend, Washington. He acquired his Master Mariner’s license at 18 years old and began working as a yacht captain aboard Puget Sound charter yachts.
After graduating the University of Washington at 21, Adam embarked on a single-handed voyage down the Pacific Coast aboard Saint Brendan, his 27-foot sloop. On this voyage, he explored the Sea of Cortez, transited the Panama Canal, circumnavigated the Caribbean Sea, and explored the eastern seaboard from Florida to Maine. During this four-year voyage, Adam made a living as a professional charter captain sailing as master aboard vessels in the Caribbean Sea. He additionally lived aboard his boat in Guatemala and Belize for a year.
Since 1995, Adam has been employed by the National Marine Fisheries Service and the U.S. Antarctic Program as a field biologist, expedition leader, and science project manager. He supported marine mammal and ecosystem researchers in Antarctica, including the coastal waters of the Eastern Pacific from Alaska to Panama.
Through these adventures, Adam developed a passion for leading expeditions and working with adventure travelers and scientists. Adam loves to get out in small boats and get up close to nature. His hobbies include writing for sailing magazines, cooking, playing basketball, and sailing with his daughter Sophia aboard their 35-foot sloop based in Guaymas, Mexico. Adam’s goal on any expedition is to make sure guests have a true adventure they will never forget.
