I am a professional Master Mariner who is dedicated to his job. I am punctual, safety & security conscious, goal- oriented, honest, and take the initiative for improvement in the system. I am flexible & hard working with a real commitment to achieve positive results. After a long and varied service record on board various dry cargo vessels of different companies since Mar'1982 (when I joined as Deck Cadet) and with experience as Master for nine years and three months, I feel now is a good time for me to take my career a step further and look for a shore based job opportunity, where I can prove to be an asset in an organisation which is on the lookout for talented and hardworking staff who will prove to be a strong foundation on which the organisation will grow by leaps and bounds. I have always given my best to every job that has been assigned to me and assure to continue to do so at all times.
