Pig Tails – Joe Perez and the Merchant Marines

This week, a conversation with Joe Perez, Trufflepig’s new Operations Manager. Previous to the travel business, Joe worked on a number of ships with the Merchant Marines. He describes a different pace of life in international waters: days are counted differently, maps become faulty and you quickly realize there is a difference between Magnetic North and True North. Here be an hour of conversation with Joe about his life at sea and how it shaped how he functions on land today, as well as how it helps him run a tight ship of misfits here at Trufflepig.
