A proficient subsea project engineer, with a broad background and ability, having developed, installed and commissioned several deepwater riser, jumper spool and mooring-line instrumentation systems for the subsea industry. This resulted in numerous long-life systems successfully operating in West Africa and the Gulf of Mexico.

A self-starter confident working independently, in teams, or as a team leader, I am comfortable in professional, shipyard and offshore environments. Continually increasing my value through education and experience, I eagerly take on new and unfamiliar tasks, succeed easily in multicultural surroundings and readily travel for extended periods
