Summary

I am a trained and qualified Civil Engineer and a Maritime Expert specialised in Maritime Safety and Environmental Administration. As a qualified Civil Engineer, I worked for two (2) Engineering Consultancy Firms in Sierra Leone, and later on started a partnership consultancy with three (3) other colleagues. 

My job with both firms was to produce detailed structural drawings from the design of the Structural Engineer, with the use of computer-aided design software known as Autodesk AutoCAD. I have vast experience in the development of structural drawings for the Construction of Jetties, Multistory Reinforced Concrete Design Structures and Road Construction.

I started my maritime career on the 1st of September 2010, as I gained employment at the Sierra Leone Maritime Administration (SLMA) as a Project Engineer for the construction project of ten (10) jetties throughout the Country. During my tenor with the SLMA, I achieved my MSc degree in Maritime Affairs and gained promotion from Project Engineer to Maritime Safety and Security Coordinator and then Quality Assurance Manager II. I have vast experiences in Marine Survey Inspections, such as Port State and Flag State Inspections, Search and Rescue Operations, Marine Causality Investigations, and International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS Code) Audits as the Designated Authority, in coordination with the US Coast Guard reciprocal program.
