This weekend will mark the transition from the years 2022 to 2023. This has been quite a year! This past month I graduated from Orange Coast College with an Associates of Science degree in Professional Mariner Activities and already there are opportunities opening up for me. I officiated on several national soccer tournaments, meeting other officials from all over the country. I am closer to receiving my Captain’s license from the United States Coast Guard and continue to cruise and sail off the coast of Southern California. There are many positive things going on and I am looking forward to another wonderful year full of love and education.
