About me

I’ve built my career, both personal & professional, in a variety of roles. I hail from Johannesburg South africa, a long way from any ocean,so you may be wondering how i ended up here in the maritime industry. Yes I have made sure to have mastered the art of looking like I know what I am doing. Moving forward i took my lively sense of humour, my experience, a few courses and got involved in an industry where no two work days are the same & I still love it. Last but certainly not least, I want you to know that I’m a passionate about moving forward with my career. I was out of the race for a bit, however as soon as the gates opened. I took my opportunity and Jumped on the first Vessel I could. In May 2021 I joined M/Y Sherpa for a Indian ocean crossing to Europe, M/Y Alfa Nero out of Yard and straight into Preparation for boss trip & then onto M/Y lady lara to finish off a Boss trip. All jobs one after eachother. In closing, I am thrilled at the possibility of joining a new Yacht family and would love the opportunity to discuss this further. I appreciate your consideration and look forward to hearing from you.
