The guest speaker will be David Veeneman
A sailor, boat owner, and student of nautical history, David grew up in Louisville, KY, where he became fascinated with boating on the Ohio River. Unfortunately, there isn't much sailing on the Ohio and David's on the water experiences were limited to sneaking out parents' ski boats and house boats with his friends. whenever the opportunity arose. Nonetheless, David maintained an interest in boating throughout a career in law and finance that took him to NY and Chicago. He sailed when he could, on Long Island Sounds and Lake Michigan. Unfortunately, a busy career did not leave much time for sailing, but it did afford lots of opportunity for reading on airplanes. David developed an interest in maritime history and did far more reading than actual sailing. David is the author of two books that bring his irreverent sense of humor to the subject of personal finance and he does occasional public speaking on the history of the sea. He sails his boat, Adelante, in the water off Southern California.
