Jerome grew up in Northern Michigan surrounded by water. Reading books about harrowing adventures fueled his mind to live life outside of the box as he grew up. He started his sailing career late, but once he caught the bug, it took off and never stopped.
After living in the Caribbean for years Jerome decided to hike the Appalachian Trail. He admits that it was a blissful time of happiness and fulfillment, but he wanted to do more, and do something on the water.
In October of 2017, Jerome climbed aboard his Westsail 32, Mighty Sparrow, Jerome would circle the globe alone and return to where he started, Gloucester, MA in June of 2018. His incredible adventure has only been completed by a handful of folks in a vessel of that size. The journey spanned 271 days and over 29,000 miles.
