As the Harbor Sr. Manager, TJ is responsible for the oversight of 9 staff members serving the boating community and 30 volunteers with the Harbor Patrol program.
TJ has spent his life dedicated personally and professionally to the marine industries. With over two decades of maritime experience, he has worked in various avenues including the Alaskan fisheries, Marine Trades, and the public sector Port Authorities.
