Keeping fit through regularly working out at the gym, snowboarding, playing rugby and golf.




Listening to music


I am an outgoing and friendly individual who is keen to develop my knowledge and skills in the yachting industry. Having grown up living close to the ocean I have always enjoyed water activities such as leisure boating and fishing. In my younger years I was also a a member of the local yacht club, sailing P-class yachts. 

I consider myself a motivated, reliable and hard working employee with a 'can-do' attitude who always gives 110% to the task at hand. I have strong communication skills and am able to develop an easy rapport and build positive relationships with clients and colleagues alike.
