For eight years, he worked with a local plumbing company, moving up until he had his own installation crew. Rod moved to Florida in 2009 and returned to his roots on the water. He started at Twin Dolphin Marina as a dock hand and quickly rose to dock supervisor and head of maintenance. Rod loves fishing, being on the water, and spending time with his family – his wife Angelique and their young son Gabriel. Rod joined Riviera Dunes Marina as our Dockmaster in May 2016.
