Jack joined the magazine at 19 and hasn’t looked back. He began his career as a staff writer/dog’s body before being made a technical writer and then boat test editor.

His job (if you can call it that) is to test and review new boats for the magazine and present our boat test videos for mby.com and the digital versions of the MBY.

When not on the water Jack enjoys playing rugby and travelling.
