Hi, I'm Rob.

Chief Engineer

Headshot1.jpg

What was your first experience that relates to your work today? For me, I was struck by the wonders of a Sunday morning alarm clock... and took it apart. I sure didn't have a lot of success with my engineering endeavors in those early days, but I kept at it.

Today I have over 24 professional years of maritime engineering experience in the most challenging of markets. From fishing boats to drill ships, Alaska to Singapore, South Korea to Brazil, and from new construction to 60 year old vessels - no matter the job,  I am passionate about seeing a project come to fruition, learning how and why equipment works (or why it doesn't), efficiently maintaining marine systems, and sharing knowledge and ideas with others. It is because of you and vessels such as yours that I am able to pursue my passion, so let me say that I am committed to providing you with the best of engineering support.
