Ed's love for boating started early when he began racing stock outboards at the age of 12, and he continued to race them for five years, along with outboard tunnel boats.

He then joined the U.S. Navy after high school and, for the next 21 years, served aboard eight different ships, including two aircraft carriers, retiring as a Chief Petty Officer.

After his time in the Navy, Ed went into boat sales, starting at Olympic Boat Centers in Northern California and specializing in selling runabouts, cruisers and fishing boats for the next four years. He then took a position with MarineMax as a Ferritti Group specialist, working for three years as the West Coast representative for the Italian yacht builder. 

He went on to serve a two year stint as manager of a yacht center for the Paulson family, focusing on  the sale of Regal Yachts, before becoming the general manager of Sun Country Marine Yacht Center in Oakland, CA, where he specialized in selling Sea Ray and Meridian yachts. Now at Denison Yachting, Ed looks forward to expanding the company's sales efforts in San Francisco.
