  • Description


    I taught filmmaking and video production for many years. All three sons are in the field now and include animation, directing, production, and video conferencing. I am now planning a reality show, “All in the Same Boat” where a mix of locals and travelers discuss a wide range of topics and cultural experiences during a four hour sail.
    I am looking for an eclectic mix of people and a host to keep the conversations moving. No prior acting or sailing experience needed as the focus is to show how diverse people are actually very similar and have commonalities. This will be on YouTube with the possibility that it might be picked up by a cable station. I can also use technical help with editing and sound. Will consider all ages 18+

    It will be wintering in Los Angeles and then drive back to New York in April . Get in touch with me now if you would like to do a New York Workaway in the spring and summer. It might extend into September.

    Sailing starts back in May.
    I sail all summer off New York City along the mansions of Long Island, think Great Gatsby. I take out between 60-70 people sailing each summer in small groups mostly through my own Meetup group and Couchsurfing. I like conversation , good stories and teaching sailing. Sails usually consists of 4-6 people from very diverse backgrounds and a mix of locals and travelers. We usually sail and then watch the sunset over the water. The pictures are not photoshopped. It is that beautiful.
    I also organize the largest Meetup social sailing group in NY with over 1,600 members.
    Public transportation to the center of New York is about an hour. The season runs from June to October. Email me for more information. I also take people to museums,The Bronx Zoo and the NY Botanical Garden. I like photography, video production, riding motorcycles, restoring old sports cars, and horseback riding.

    I am a born and bred New Yorker. Every year I am available to show people around NY. I have memberships to the New York Botanical Garden. I sail with mixed, eclectic groups of locals and world travelers. No two excursions are the same. Many of my 200+ guests (from other site) have said in their references, that sailing on my boat was one of their best experiences in their travels. I have been active on another hosting site since 2012 with over 165 references.
