About & Hobbies

I'm a commercially qualified Chief Engineer on the lookout for a new challenge interested in Large new builds and well established private/charter yachts

I’m a very active, hands on, hard working engineer who advocates and stresses the importance of teamwork. I’m diligent and professional in my work, and strive to achieve high standards at all times. I have extensive experience in engineering on yachts between 50 and 110m, including maintenance, drydocking, ship yards, expedition vessels and guest trips.

I also spent the early part of my Carer on large cruiser ships prior to moving to yachting.

I have a keen interest in all types of watersports, specifically wakeboarding and water skiing and also enjoy off road motor biking and hillwalking
