My passion for being on the water started when I was a child, however my homeland was the mountains and I started sailing dinghies and cruising boats only in the second part of my life, purely as a hobby in my limited free time.
I am an organizational psychologist; I worked for 34 years at a large multinational company, expert in the research and assessment of leadership behaviors. As part of my long career I managed large projects and developed new business opportunities. I like to make things work – from development programs to computer software to boat rigging.
I quit my job as an employee to make a dream come true – sail beyond the Pillars of Hercules to explore new seas and cultures.
Key to this project is my partner Gemma, with whom we share several passions, and that after a few years of sailing together still did not push me overboard!
