Born and raised on a farm in Lexington, SC my love for boating began as a child sailing and spending my days running around on Lake Murray in a Boston Whaler. My father introduced me to offshore fishing before the age of 10 and I have been consumed by the lifestyle of being on the water ever since.

While attending the University of SC, and Midlands Tech I became interested in buying and selling boats from auctions as a hobby. That experience soon engulfed my attention and that passion led me to Palm Beach to explore the yacht business in 1995.

My first experience with brokerage was with a small house in Fort Pierce in 1996, where and I was then soon hired by Dick Bassett to cover Sea Ray brokerage in Palm Beach and Martin Counties. I left Bassett shortly after the launch of MarineMax in 1999 and joined HMY Yachts to expand my playing field in the brokerage arena. I remained there until the Summer of 2006 when I joined Westport Yachts in Fort Lauderdale. Over 15 years of working with Westport has been a great experience that led me to open Miles Yacht Group in November of 2019. Miles Yacht Group operates from Palm Beach Island as well as Jupiter Yacht Club in Jupiter FL. Our group focuses on the 80' to 200' sector with relationships with prominent shipyards as well as brokerage.

I am most pleased to have been able to build such a great network of friends in the brokerage community. These relationships I have fostered over the last 30 plus years have made me successful in what I do and carried me through the various economic cycles.
