Originally from the Twin Cities of Minnesota, the Land of 10,000 Lakes, Nate grew up working and playing on the water. After graduating from Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida with a business management degree, he decided to begin his career on superyachts. This combined his passion for travelling, working on the water and interacting with people from other countries. After nearly 10 years in the industry, Nate has been fortunate enough to work on superyachts that travel all around the world, including islands in the South Pacific, Indonesia, Australia, S.E Asia, the Mediterranean, Caribbean, and even the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Seaway to Chicago. Nate decided to make the step ashore in early 2018 to continue his career within the superyacht industry as a yacht manager with Ocean Independence.
To bring even more to the Ocean Independence team, Nate has now obtained a diploma in superyacht management from the Maritime Training Academy in Hampshire, United Kingdom. He looks forward to providing each and every yacht Owner with expertise and quality service so that they are able to enjoy their investment without a worry in the world.
