About & Hobbies

Dear Owner, Captain and Recruiter I am energetic and positive person who is proud with his profession, knowledge and skills, grateful for the opportunity to be part of the yachting industry. Starting my maritime carrier in 2006 as a part of the Maritime Administration and joining the commercial sector in 2011, slowly progressed toward my Master Unlimited license. I had both the opportunity and pleasure to join the yachting industry in 2016, where implemented all my commercial knowledge and skills, safety culture, worldwide navigational experience, various types of inspections and audits, drydocks and refits, in to the yachting sector.

My main priority is the owner and his guests, Captain and the Crew and to achieve as best I can a friendly and stress free working environment on board.

In my spare time when at home I enjoy practicing and teaching Kendo and Aikido. Reading a good book at home or watching a nice movie in the Cinema is a must as well. I enjoy outdoor walking, some times playing a video game or a table top game with friends. When at work I try to be active all the times, moving a lot and help my team in every aspect, if there is a crew gym on board, for me is mandatory to find time for it as well when not under charter or on owner trip. I like swimming using every opportunity when weather and time permits.
