I met Carson and his wife Amanda in the Spring 2018 session of the Social Sailing program on Treasure Island where they were team members on my boat in the morning group. Carson was the helmsman for the team, driving us to a solid lead at the beginning of the last day. A bad race on that final day slipped us into second for the series, but certainly not because of Carson's driving.
With a degree in neurobiology from UC Davis, Carson is a sharp young man. But after graduation he shifted his interests to the trades, and he now holds a supervisory role for Cupertino Electric, where he oversees two buildings at UCSF. Carson's father was in the SFPD for 40 years, which likely contributed to Carson's strong discipline, noteworthy integrity and civic-minded attitude.
Carson's first involvement in the Sailing Science Center project was during our May 10 Brainstorming Event. During follow-up calls Carson's comments and suggestions for the project were among the best I received. But of all the things that have impressed me about Carson, the thing that has impressed me the most has been his simple consistency in always doing what he says he's going to do. Carson joined me at the BYC event in September (see below) and took the pictures and video that appear with that article. It's a pleasure to know you Carson, and a pleasure to have your interest in this project.
