|I’ve been the Harbor Master here in Crescent City for the past six and a half years. I started my maritime career as a deckhand on towboats on the Mississippi River. Following that I worked as a Port Captain for Gulf Fleet Marine’s offshore oilfield support operation based in Ciudad del Carmen, Mexico, where we were subcontractors for Pemex. I have been fortunate to serve as the President of the California Association of Harbor Masters and Port Captains for 2019 and 2020.
