Although being new to the industry, I do have recreational and professional maritime experience. Most recently, I have assisted various vessels with any and all maintenance requirements during shipyard or upkeep of the vessels. In addition I worked for Edmiston at F.L.I.B.S. 2023, assisting with physical labour, tending to and escorting guests, via tender. I have also spent many hours and holidays with family on their 19ft Benguela (120 horsepower outboard engines) boat towing my cousins and friends on water inflatables and knee-boarding myself. I am now pursuing the next step in my professional career preferably in the US as I have a B1/B2 10yr visa in hand. I have my PBL2 license.
I am eager to learn, grow and progress in this vibrant industry. Coming from a fast paced and customer service orientated industry, my outgoing personality and good work ethic has taught me to be proactive in problem resolution, have great attention to detail, manage my time wisely and be extremely organized. My strength to communicate effectively, passion for people, skills and knowledge of the sports and retail sector, allow me to offer a professional quality service.
I’m adventurous and often outdoors on the water, exploring, hiking, on the golfer course, coaching or playing myself.
My 5 year plan will include completing a Diving and Dive Instructor courses, Jet Ski Instructor’s course, Day Skipper course and finally my Yacht Master 200GT certification.
Where I may lack in “on board” experience being new to the industry, I make up for in additional maritime courses, skills, talents and experience that I know, if given the opportunity I will go the extra mile to meet all your expectations.
I pride myself on my Professionalism, my Attention to Detail and my Provincial and National Sporting accomplishments … Fun fact about myself, I made the South African PSI Indoor Hockey Team as a Striker, but yet I come from a family of 11 Goalkeepers.
I hope this brief introduction of myself will meet with your expectations. I look forward to hearing from you.
