Dennis did his first solo sail at age 5 in a sailing dinghy in Lake Washington, and has been boating ever since. He and his wife Nola have owned a series of boats they have used to cruise in Puget Sound, the San Juan Islands and Gulf Islands.
Dennis is an avid sailboat racer, and has crewed on some successful big boats in regattas. He became a sailing instructor in 1985 and has shared his passion for sailing with hundreds of students.
Dennis and his wife Nola moved to Anacortes in 2019 from Seattle, and enjoy exploring the beaches and forest trails on Fidalgo Island with their dog Bandit. Dennis is a former bicycle racer, and stays fit by riding his road bike around the island and Skagit Valley.
Dennis’ professional background is in marketing and communications; he held senior management positions at large marketing agencies and corporate marketing departments, developing strategy and supervising teams to implement marketing campaigns in more than 100 countries around the world.
