I am an excellent troubleshooter and I practice good mechanical habits. I have the background and experience that gives me the skills to diagnose and repair while underway utilizing materials and repair parts on the vessel preventing costly downtime and unnecessary returns to port. I have a good working knowledge of hydraulic, pneumatic and shipboard auxiliary systems.


I have been working in the marine industry for over two decades, sailing as Engineer for twelve of those years. I appreciate the dedication necessary to perform well in this position. I am motivated, intelligent and I work well with others. I look forward to speaking with you about the possibility of employment.
