PROFILE

I’m an energetic ETO working within the technology systems onboard superyachts. Working with such systems isn’t just a job for me; it’s also a hobby.

My story began at the age of 16 with a marine electrical apprenticeship, which was very diverse. Working in numerous departments to get a flavour of all aspects of the marine industry. From repairing ships electrical systems, building switchboards and assisting in CAD. Studying to HND level in electrical/electronic engineering. This training gave me the foundations for where I am today. I am extremely confident, but I respect all technical systems and how they interact with each other.

At the age of 21, I was introduced to the “superyacht world”, and I have never looked back again. I began installing electrical, AVIT and bridge systems onboard superyachts in shipyards (MB92-STP). To actually become an ETO on one of the biggest yachts in the world at the age of 25. For the last ten years, I have cherished working onboard as an ETO; it really has broadened my knowledge.  I believe this has made me a good all-rounder even though I now specialise in AVIT.With my curious mind, I’m constantly seeking out innovative ideas and new equipment. I believe we cannot afford to stand still as it’s an ever-evolving industry. This is why I’m delighted to join the Superyacht technology news network as they are informing the consumers by getting honest reviews and opinions on product/systems that we all have or at some point will install onboard.

 

Last year, I joined forces with a like-minded IT guru, and we created Yachtdoc. We offer the full AV/IT spectrum with some unique new ways of working. Which is welcomed by; Yacht management and crew as our onboard experiences get past onto their projects. You can reach us here www.yachtdoc.co

 

Above all, I like to believe I am a professional fun guy, with a good work ethic who enjoys life.
