A seasoned traveler, I have visited 30 countries in 4 continents. I’m a self-confessed military history buff willing to share the secrets behind the great architecture, engineering, naval objects, and intriguing facts of Old San Juan’s military past. Working in the maritime industry for over 15 years, has spiked my interest to visit sea and river ports all over the word, and have learn first-hand the story behind famous moving vessels, what role they played in naval battles, and their relationship to military history. Also, I’m a proud Eagle Scout and current chairman of Sea Scouts in the board of directors of Boys Scouts-Puerto Rico Council.
