Professional Background

My career in the maritime industry started since 1998 and continues until now. Over the time I’ve been passing trough the very bottom positions as a deckhand going trough five years University Master Degree studying in the major of Ship Navigation and Engineering, several sailing practices and contracts as Assistant Officer and OOW in the Commercial Shipping Industry and progressing trough the Yachting Industry reaching my present position as a Yacht Captain. During that time I managed to gain extensive sailing experience visiting places all around the world, building working habits in docking, navigational watch keeping, maintenance, safety, security, shipyard work periods, commissioning, surveys, Port State Controls and establishing a lot of connections in the maritime industry. Overall I become more disciplined, responsible, cooperative with sense of humor and more open to work and communicate in team with lots of people from different nationalities. As young and ambitious person I can say that I really enjoy my profession and I hope that I will find the best boat and team to work with. My future intentions are to continue my professional development in the industry, because sailing is my passion.
