I have spent 20+ years at sea, I have a positive attitude, hard work ethic, and a passion for life and boats. I enjoy every aspect of being on ships, working in shipyard, and the people involved. I have spent most my career at sea, and am looking forward to being shore side, and passing on the knowledge I have, while helping to further the company I work for, and improving the work environment of the people I work with. As a Bosun on both small and large ships, there really isn't much I haven't done, but if you need more detail then that, I am ready and willing to answer any questions.
Thank you for your time.
