Manager info

About: I am licensed contractor on St. John and specialize in woodworking. Windsurfing and sailing are my primary hobbies. I have two daughters who attend school stateside. I have lived on St. John since 1974 when I moved here with my parents. Two siblings and my parents still live on St. John.

Why Fish Bay:
I found a unique piece of property with historical ruins and pictured building my home. I first designed and built Cactus Flower to live in. The cottage has all custom woodworking throughout. I now live in the main house that I designed and built encompassing the ruins on another piece of the property.
