Devon is Texan born and raised. He graduated highschool in 2010, and after a year in college he knew he didn’t want to continue sitting in a classroom. With a passion for the ocean and jungle, he decided to partake in a marine conservation internship in Mexico along the Riviera Maya near Tulum.
While there, he discovered scuba diving and the underwater world. He quickly found out that diving would open up doors everywhere he wanted to go, so after 9 months and 200 dives he became a PADI dive instructor. With this license for fun, he took a job with Lahaina Divers on Maui, Hawaii. Without ever visiting before, he knew this was going to be an amazing chapter of his life. He prospered for nearly 5 years on Maui working and living the ocean lifestyle between scuba diving, snorkeling, whale watches, and dinner cruise trips. Being 26 at the time, there was a lot more of the world to see. He decided to return to Texas, regrouped for about a year, and finally decided to return to the ocean via the yachting industry.
He did some research, sold most of his belongings, and drove to Fort Lauderdale in September of 2019 right in time for the boat show. This is where he met the owner/captain of his first yacht. From there, a trial period turned in to 3 years on board learning all aspects of the yachting world.
He acted as 1st mate, engineer, deckhand, stew, and relief captain once he gained his 100 ton license. Learning from all departments, and always taking pride in what he does, the next opportunity arose.
The “yachtie” world is now a lifestyle for him, and he is extremely excited to bring his passion and skills to the MY Magic.
