Welcome to Port & Starboard


Here are a couple reasons to check out P&S:

HEALTH - You want to be the best man you can be? Start by really taking care of yourself. The future will tell you how honest you have been. Your skin holds in it many toxins that your body tries to get rid of. It's an organ. It can become dehydrated, irritated and cause you discomfort. Think about how you take care of it. I use 100% natural ingredients and as much organic ingredients I can in P&S products. It makes a huge difference. I'm proud to use great ingredients.

BE AWARE OF YOURSELF - Have confidence in the way you feel and look. Along with consciously choosing better ingredients, food and products to use I have become a Reiki master/teacher which has given me the chance to understand and utilize the importance of universe life force energy. We are made up of energy and with our mind, body, and soul we strive for balance and awareness.

BE ADVENTUROUS - We are constantly bombarded with being and getting better. Have fun with it. Get a new shirt that looks awesome that you can wear out or to work. Port & Starboard was created from both getting better as a man and being adventurous. The products are healthy, awesome for your skin and your body. Which is a plus I felt to be my responsibility. There are so many products out there that can get you clean but are full of cheap chemicals that can totally work against you while your trying to be your best. My products are fun and I have a blast making them. My favorite part, besides people buying them and enjoying them, was naming them. Out of all the jobs I listed above that I have had, the NAVY and Teaching sailing lessons were my two favorite ones. They taught me more about myself and I had a great time doing it.

Ready for even more fun?

I'm a Dad. Truly the hardest and funniest job to date.. I got divorced a year ago, So spending time with my kids has been the best part of my week. I'm not talking about the weekend or every other Saturday. 4 days a week I'm with them. No cable, no video games and NO nanny.. I have fun coming up with things to do. Huge fan of arts and crafts, lots of walks and park adventures. If we do watch tv it's netflix. Half hour shots of fun shows or full length movie we decide together. During the summers it's of to the best play ground this beautiful world has to offer. The beach!


I educate my children on whats available to them and what is good for them by reading about everything. Lets take for instance that I use to use the average, everyday shaving and body care products. They got me clean, sure, but they came with so many side effects. I never realized the effect they had on me or anyone else for that matter until I had children. After I discovered that my children had allergies to some foods and skin reactions to some chemicals that are in most products I found that they effected me too. Damn, what do I do now? Things are always changing and It is how we deal with them that makes us better as people. So what did I do? I started looking into and researching every product we bring into the house, from food, clothing, cleaning products, toothpaste, and especially our body care has become a standard. As a parent I want my children to be informed on anything and everything in order for them to make the best decision possible. I had to start that for myself FIRST. So with a lot of help from my girlfriend who has a great etsy shop, I decided to make my own hygiene products so I know exactly what's in them.


This natural, organic line of bath, body & skin care is dedicated to every man. Being one myself, I think that gives me a knowledgeable edge - the inside track on what men look for in body care, whether it comes to how products feel, what they smell like, what they look like, and how they work.


The idea of creating a product line for men, that not only cleanses, it smells amazing, it's sharply packaged, and it is made with the highest quality natural ingredients. Which are good for you and really makes my Stay-At-Home-Dad job something I can be proud of and I'm honored to share it with you.

Hang in there, I would like share my passion and commitment to Port & Starboard.

Well first I have a lot of fun naming my products. As I said it's my favorite part. I have a couple ideas in the makings to utilize this title a little bit more in the future so I can't say to much more about it now, but.

As a child, I went with my family to the beach a lot and loved to play in the water. I always found myself looking out to the horizon just wondering what was out there. Were did this wave just come from? How far could I swim? Were would it take me? Looking at maps, later in life, answered a few questions, but the unknown was the voyage... what did it take to get to a different place through the ocean. I always felt very balanced and happy around water.

Years later, after many more days at the beach and a couple more jobs, I stumbled into the idea of joining the NAVY. I loved going out to sea, the longer the better. It really wasn't the fantasy that I had in my imagination since I was a child, but what I learned and where I've traveled have given me answers to questions I would have never asked myself.

When out to sea I could always look forward to a secret place I found on my ship. It was a catwalk off the portside with a grated deck (which is similar to a sidewalk grate or drain grate). It made me feel like I was hovering 30 feet above the water. I would look out to that friendly horizon and asked my questions, again.... What is out there? This time I was able to say, I'll find out when we get there!

All things Nautical bring me to a place were I feel the best. The products here at Port & Starboard have my greatest memories and hopeful encouragement invested in them. I would like for you to enjoy them with me. I have always been told that if I do something I love, I will not work a day of my life. My customers help me do that. Thank you.


** All Port & Starboard bath, body and skin care products are handmade in small controlled batches, with high quality ingredients. I use sustainable, organic, wildcrafted and fair-trade ingredients whenever possible, and contain them in recycled or recyclable bottles and jars.
