Wayne began his adventurous lifestyle at the age of 16 when he found the love of flying an airplane. He joined the Army at the age of 17 and became part of an airborne unit which sparked his desire to skydive professionally. He later pursued his instructor's ratings and began Eagle Flight Skydiving in Granbury, Texas to share the sport with others.
Emily pursued a career as a pharmacist. As a way of giving back, Emily volunteers working with groups like Open Arms International in Eldoret, Kenya and Outreach organizations on the Amazon River assisting with the needed medical camps.
Wayne and Emily found a new love of scuba while honeymooning in Cozumel. They have both pursued their Padi Divemaster, Rescue Diver and Emergency First Response Trainer certifications. With several dive vacations, their love of the sea grew and they had a dream to purchase their own sailboat at some point.
In 2013, they commissioned Royal Cape Catamaran in Durban, South Africa to build S/V Manna, a true 53' ocean going vessel. After sailing Manna across the Atlantic and the love for the islands in BVI it was decided to share the passion with others by chartering her in the BVI for a few years before continuing on with circumnavigating. In the last two years during the off season they have sailed over 20,000 nautical miles abroad delivering supplies for humanitarian efforts in areas like Haiti along with providing aid for full time missionaries in the field around the world. During these new adventures Wayne and Emily both have earned their USCG 100 ton Master Ratings with Sail Endorsements.
