Chef: Neen Reynolds
A seven year resident of the Virgin Islands, Neen, is now Chef and First Mate aboard her beautiful home, S/Y Ocean Vibes. As a Midwest Ohio native and lifelong traveler, she enjoys creating a wide and exciting array of dishes for your enjoyment. Her creations and methodology have been influenced by cuisines of Lebanon, Japan, Italy, Korea, Denmark, Austria, France, the Philippines, the American South, Southwest, and Midwest and of course, her current home, the Caribbean Islands.
In addition to traveling and experimenting with food, Neen dedicated much of her life to the study of fine art. Upon moving to the Caribbean, she found an intense love for life on the water, and so, transitioned her work from paper to plate. “In the past I created art you simply looked at, now I create art you smell, touch, see, taste, devour and even sometimes hear..” One of the most rewarding elements of life on the water for Neen is life IN THE WATER! As a certified Dive Master and avid snorkeler, she will be your guide in the breathtaking underwater world of the Virgin Islands. You may even be lucky enough to snare a lobster for lunch! If not, try your hand at catching a Mahi Mahi, Tuna or Wahoo to be enjoyed as ceviche, tartare, tacos… the options are limitless with Chef and First Mate Neen.
