Ted is originally from Gloucester, MA and grew up spending his summers sailing around the Cape Ann area, as well as working at a number of different boating-related jobs. Ted is currently a junior majoring in History and International Area Studies at Washington University in St. Louis. Although he has grown to appreciate the midwest, he is excited to spend this summer away from the landlocked state of Missouri. Ted is also involved in his school’s Wilderness Project and loves spending time outdoors, whether that means hiking in the Ozarks, kayaking in the Essex salt marshes, or distance running wherever he happens to be. When he is unable to get outside, Ted spends most of his free time writing and editing for his college newspaper where he manages the news section. Ted can’t wait to finally head down to the BVIs this summer and meet Sail Caribbean’s wonderful students and staff members.
