Devon – First Officer

   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.

Ivan – Chef

Ivan began his culinary career in 2001.     After graduating from the university in Mexico City, he began operations within his culinary focus at hotels including the Four Seasons.  In 2009, he stepped away from more commercial locations to chef and operate the Marakame Café in Cancun, then to a couple of other Restaurants in the region, developing his skills.  In 2012, he took over operations of a number of Seagoing restaurants for Holland America Line on their cruise ships.   This gave him focus on plating’s and creating meal programs for a large galley operation.

When Covid shut down operations with the cruise fleets, Ivan found himself in a position to narrow his culinary focus and enter yachting.

Once stepping aboard yachts, he has been able to take is commercial high end drive and bring it to a smaller, more intimate surrounding.  He has been involved with a number of yachts, and fractional vessels, where the galley has been non-stop, yet the creativity needed to remain high end.

Ivan looks forward to being apart of the Magic family and delivering “potions” of flavors and beauty to the clients aboard.

From the beautiful islands of Cebu Philippines, she had always dreamt to travel around the world… After graduating college with a Bachelors of Science in Commerce majoring in Banking & Finance, she pursued a short-term course in Elderly International Caregiving Program for the faith that this may led to help her achieve her dreams to work abroad.

It was in her childhood that she discovered the love for God, people and traveling! Her hobbies include going to new places and taking pictures of the scenery and walking outdoors.
