I am a professional writer, editor, and speaker, with more than 1,000 published articles in print and digital media.
I've also spent nearly three decades in the marine industry — as a yacht designer, boat builder, marine operations and business manager, marine industry consultant, marine marketing and communications specialist, yachting magazine journalist, yacht surveyor, marine industry educator and trained interest-based mediator and negotiator.
In a previous life, I was formally trained as an academic philosopher and, for several years, taught logic and philosophy at university. You can find more about me at __ https://www.linkedin.com/in/friedmanphil/ __ https://www.bebee.com/@friedman-phil __ http://www.wwaco.org
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
- MARCUS AURELIUS
