I have sailed onboard US flagged container vessels for 2 years as a 3rd Mate Officer and am currently working with K-Line America as the Fuel Consumption Conservation Center Officer (F3C Officer). As fuel prices rose drastically from 2007-2008, K-Line America created F3C to reduce its container fleets bunker consumption. Since the position has been created in March of 2008, I have reduced company costs by more than $2.2 million by optimizing routes, controlling vessel speeds, and calculating ETAs based on the latest weather forecasts.
I find myself ready for new challenges and believe there would be a good fit between my skills as a maritime officer and your needs. Enclosed is my resume which further outlines my qualifications. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. Thank you for your time and consideration.
