Trevor grew up in Queenscliff, Victoria, Australia, a small coastal fishing and resort town. He was only 17 when he obtained his first captain license and started operating small vessels part-time while completing an electrical apprenticeship.
After that, he worked at an exclusive island resort in Queensland for 5 years, where he taught scuba diving, sailing, water skiing, game fishing and also captained all of the resort vessels.
After achieving his Australian Master Class 4 Commercial captain license and engineering qualification, Trevor moved to Florida and worked for 5 years as a captain and engineer in the US, Caribbean and Mexico.
During that time he also obtained his commercial helicopter license, and worked part-time doing aerial photography for boats. He then went back to Australia, where he finished a new-build expedition vessel and served as Captain/Helicopter Pilot on board for 3 years.
Trevor is currently the captain of M/Y Allegria, an extremely high quality mega-yacht. Allegria-- which means “joy” or “happiness” in Italian--was built in Holland at the premier Hakvoort Shipyards in 2004.
