Heading to Pinel for a day in the sun

I’ve been visiting the island of Saint Martin for over ten years, with my first visit coming in May of 2009 to celebrate my 40th birthday with my girlfriend (now wife). Since that first visit, Saint Martin has become an integral part of our life, visiting several times over the years with my wife and two sons.

We currently live in Phoenix, Arizona, and still consider the island of Saint Martin a second home. We love the culture, the community, and the beauty of this small, incredible island. The people have always made us feel at home and welcome. This website was started as a way for me to help share the knowledge and information I’d gained during Hurricane Irma. You can read about our vision and mission here.

I’ve been building and running websites since February of 2016, when I started a blog focused on the Chicago Cubs from scratch. Not only did the Cubs win the World Series in 2016, but that blog — now called Cubs Insider — has grown to become one of the largest independently owned Cubs blogs. You can read more about how I became a Cubs fan here.

If you have any questions or comments, you can reach me here. Thanks for swinging by and hopefully we’ll meet someday in Saint Martin!
