Born in the northern suburbs of Chicago, George spent his early years learning to sail and race on Lake Michigan and the inland lakes of Wisconsin. He spent his high school years racing on his high school sailing team, and his summers coaching youth sailing teams for his local yacht club. He has recently graduated Miami University in Oxford Ohio, majoring in Business Management and Leadership. After slowing down his sailboat racing at the end of high school, he decided to join Seamester on their recent fall trip as a way to take a break from business school and get back into sailing, where he started on his 200 ton Yacht Master training and completed in the spring of 2017. After having such a great time with Seamester aboard Argo, he realized his passion for teaching sailing and working on board boats, which has led him to ActionQuest. George’s passions include finding and listening to good music, cooking good food, and any activity having to do with wind he can get into.
