Maritime Objective

To obtain a Captains position on one of the Elite Motor Yacht’s in the Industry.

Brief Summary of Maritime Experience

Over 20 years in the maritime industry I have gained a wide range of experience, both in commercial and private sectors.
As a Captain I have operated and managed commercial boating operations in remote locations catering for exclusive guests. I have operated mega-yachts in the USA, Caribbean, Mediterranean and South pacific waters. I have supervised the building of new vessels to class certification, vessel extensions and refitted vessels maintaining their class certification.

I obtained my first captains license when I was 20 years old. My family owned and operated a Mechanical Garage and Marine repair business. I was raised at the entrance to some of the roughest waters in Australia, Queenscliff, a small fishing village located at the entrance to Bass Strait.

I enjoy my work and have always set my standards to the highest level and expect no less from my crew. This has ensured the operation of the most professional and safe vessels. I have assisted in many sea search operations and vessels in distress.


As an experienced Captain operating in both the private and commercial sector I am used to working within a dynamic and ever changing environment. I have a full and varied knowledge of the maritime industry working in various disciplines such as an electrical leading hand to the position of Captain. I’m a confident Captain/team leader and decision-maker, as you would expect from a competent and experienced Captain something that both the crew and guests recognize which instills confidence and motivation on board.
