Dan Carpenter


Before coming ashore in 1995 to start FairWeather Group, Dan spent almost 20 years traveling the world’s oceans as a navigator on merchant ships. During his travels, he visited every US state except for North Dakota, and every country in the Western Hemisphere except for Bolivia and Paraguay. All three places are, of course, far from the ocean. The attention to detail required for navigation and the problem-solving skills required to safely manage a ship both prepared him to solve the problems of growing small businesses.

Roxanne Prestigiacomo

QuickBooks Consultant

Prior to FairWeather Group, Roxanne served a marginalized and vulnerable population in the Monterey County. Her experience as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse allows her to delve deep into challenging matters and to examine problems from multiple perspectives. Roxanne enjoys gathering and putting pieces together; she has a great knack for puzzles. You can catch her behind a book for endless hours reading the latest psychological thriller. When she is not busy solving the next great mystery, you can find her competing in a tennis match against her husband Anthony or hiking the beautiful treks of the Monterey Peninsula with her mixed Siberian Huskies, Codi and Luca.

Anthony Prestigiacomo

QuickBooks Consultant

I ensure that our clients can use Smartsheet in their day-to-day operations, and assist them in mastering the three core features: sheets, reports, and dashboards. Smartsheet shines when the data is correctly entered into the sheets, then compiled in properly configured reports, then displayed and shared throughout the company on a dashboard. I also assist our clients in the internal use of Trainual so that their employees can capture their policies, processes, and procedures.

James Carpenter

James has been prepared by life to function well in today’s vibrant and diverse working environment. While he mainly grew up in Northern California, he spent part of his youth living in Belem, Brazil, at the mouth of the Amazon, and in Sao Paulo, a city of 25 million in the south of Brazil. This experience left him fluent in both English and Portuguese.
