I began lobstering at the age of 16. I have a son, two brothers-in-law, three nephews, cousins, uncles, and a father-in-law who lobster fish. I learned from all my relatives. When I was in high school, I fished with my future father-in-law, fell in love with it, and have been doing it ever since.

My boat, Autumn Gail, is named after my daughter and wife, Autumn and Gail. My wife is the Winter Harbor postmaster. My daughter is in college and my 23-yr old son has been a lobsterman for 20 years.

I have fished for ground fish, scallops, shrimp, quohogs, sea cucumbers, urchins, lobsters, crabs in the last 29 years. I joined the Co-op in 1990 and have been on the Board of Directors. The comradery between fishermen and being my own boss are two of the main reasons I am a lobsterman.
