Current Role Within Your Company

Navigator, Team Ponderosa, Rebelle Rally 2020

In a Nutshell

As Navigator for Team Ponderosa it is my responsibility to be able to plot latitude & longitude, read topographic maps and time/speed/distance. Using these skills accurately identity checkpoints, select optimal routes that allows us to complete as many checkpoints each day during the Rebelle Rally.

Why I Got Into a Career in Motorsports

I grew up sailing competitively in the north east and at UC Santa Cruz. That led me to work for West Marine the largest boating supply business, that then led me to launch Boatbound (Airbnb for boats)
