About & Hobbies

I started my career as a junior deckhand on-board a 92m motor yacht for over two years. Progressing to a leading hand/relief bosun position on-board a 124m motor yacht for just over a year. I decided during this time that the best way of progressing and truly understanding my chosen career was to go back to college. I studied Nautical Science in The National Maritime College of Ireland gaining a First Class Honours Degree upon completion. I completed over twelve months sea-time with Chevron Shipping and over six months watch keeping time.

Prior to my final semester of college I worked as a temp leading hand on-board an 80m motor yacht for 6weeks, hired by a Chief Officer I had previously worked with. I am determined to continue to learn and grow within the industry where I started. I have three and a half years of experience on deck and one year of experience as a cadet on-board 250+m Oil and LNG tankers, I believe I have gained a depth of understanding of seafaring operations and different vessel types over this time and I believe I would be an asset to any team that I joined.

Captained senior level rugby; played in the All Ireland League top division. Scuba diving; have dived some of the world’s top sites. Keen Sailor; I have been sailing since a young age, completing all my sailing levels in Ireland. I am a fitness enthusiast, I workout daily enjoying a wide variety of fitness styles from weightlifting to long distance running. I swim in the Irish sea all year round and this year I completing a Freezebury challenge during the month of February for charity. I enjoy playing tennis, 5a side football and tag rugby. I Enjoy watching almost all sports including Formula 1.
