John Marinus began producing pirate-themed adventures and animatronic props for summer camps, businesses, and private events in 1990. In 2001 he joined the Brethren of the Coast providing props, special effects, and stage design for their pirate shows. A toy inventor by profession, Steven had the fortuitous opportunity to help design the action figures toy line for the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie, On Stranger Tides. He has performed professionally as a pirate in his home state of California and in other cities in the U.S. He is thankful to the Order of Leviathan for its true spirit of camaraderie in bringing together such a disparate, eclectic and talented group of pirate professionals and enthusiasts from the four corners of the globe.
