About the Organizer

I am a lifelong sailor and longtime East Coast swing dancer. I have taken more than 400 people sailing on the Columbia River over the past five years. This event will bring together two of my passions: sailors who have never danced swing will get an introduction to that style of dance and swing dancers who have never sailed will get an introduction to the sport. You can reach me at by phone/text at 541-543-0525 or by e-mail at Professionally, I am a freelance writer, specializing in geospatial technologies. You can read my articles and bio at
