I’ve been coming to the Cape since 1965 when I visited while doing marine research on Coralline algae for the Smithsonian Institution. I have sailed on Pleasant Bay since the late 1960’s and have restored several wooden boats, including a double ended surf rescue boat now used by the Sea Scout Troop 72 of Orleans. I’m a counselor and architect/planner by training. After retiring as Director of Facilities Planning at Cornell University, I focused on designing, building and restoring furniture in a barn, overlooking the Narrows and Sipson’s Island. I really look forward to helping preserve Pleasant Bay for both the environment’s sake as well as for the enjoyment of all.
