Matthew and Jennica

Matthew is from Birmingham, Michigan, a midwestern town with a rich history and high regard for family values. His family enjoyed frequent adventures together boating on Lake Loraine. Even as a young 5-year old, Matthew was eager to learn the ropes and everything there was to know about boating! Growing up, he was always active in a variety of sports; skiing, fishing, hunting, canoeing, rock climbing, American football, soccer, baseball, and basketball. He even held the State record for hurdles in the 8th grade. Matthew’s natural energy keeps him motivated to excel and drives him to seek out his greatest passions.

Similar in diversity to his sports interests, Matthew’s career path has lead him to develop unique, specialized skill sets required for each position. He was a whitewater raft guide for 6 years in Colorado, a waiter at The Grub Steak restaurant in Estes Park, Colorado, a professional bartender at multiple bars in Austin, Texas, a professional musician for 15 years in Colorado and Austin, owned a record label and recording studio called Stardust Drive in Austin, Texas and was involved in real estate development. Enjoying and thriving in each of these endeavors, he left this all behind to finally follow his dream and sail to the Caribbean.

Captain Matthew has now been sailing in the Exuma Cays for over twelve years and has become intimately familiar with some truly prime spots! His favorite place on earth to sail is the Bahamas, especially the Exumas, which showcases the clearest water in the world and every shade of Blue. Matthew is constantly mesmerized by the beauty, charmed by the friendliness of the locals and in awe of all the Exuma blue. His energy is contagious in that guests find themselves living by his motto, and discovering: “Another Best Day Ever!”



Jennica grew up in a little town called Salem, south of Stockholm, Sweden. She was the youngest of three girls, an accomplished horse show jumper, very eager to learn new things, and always a bit restless. She wanted to see the world, and she had a plan. Jennica worked almost day and night at her job with Autistic children to saving up money to go backpacking. Starting her solo journey India at the age of 20, her six month adventure turned into two years exploring the Himalayas, Rajasthan, and Goa.

Her next path lead her to Australia where she worked cowgirl on a ranch and some local eateries. While she loved horses, Jennica soon discovered a stronger pull towards a passion of cooking for others. She started taking cooking classes all over the world and even worked as a chef in India. Guests aboard Serendipity will have a rare culinary opportunity to sample a truly international menu. Among her most popular dishes, “Smorgastarta”, Jennica explains, “is a lunch that introduces guests to Swedish culture. It’s a big sandwich cake, decorated with beautiful colors and delicious meats and cheeses. People always want seconds.”

Finding herself in the beautiful Caribbean was a natural next step, where she loves to share her sense of adventure from exploring picturesque coves and snorkel spots, to creating an experience on every plate!
