Pogy(Poh-Gee) is a Norwalk native who began his oystering career with Talmadge at the age of 14. It was only a matter of 2 years before Pogy left Talmadge to join the United States Merchant Marines and then the Marine Corp. After serving his country, he accepted a position with Sikorsky-Helicopters, where he spent 40 years with the aviation company. 

After an exceptional career with Sikorsky, Pogy decided it was time for a change and found himself back in the oysterying industry. He started working with Copps Island in 2012 and is now responsible for daily operations and maintaining our oyster boats. Pogy enjoys boating, riding his motorcycle and spending time with his family.
