I have worked at sea, in the Sub-Sea / Offshore Oil industry for over thirty-five years, basically all my working life, – I have done nothing else.
Currently, I’m engaged as an Offshore Client Rep for Subsea Installations, specializing in Diving, ROV, Pipe-Lay, & Heavy Lift Operations. I work for a time offshore, & then we have time off to go cruising. The schedules are not set in stone, but we can more-or-less choose when to work & when to cruise. I believe we are very fortunate and I thank God for these opportunities.
During my career, I have worked in these various capacities: Client Site Representative, Sub-Sea Consultant, Offshore Manager, Diving Superintendent, Diving Safety Specialist, Bell Diving Supervisor, Saturation Diver, ADS pilot, & Air Diver.
Currently, (July-August, 2017) I’m working in Norway as the Delivery Superintendent for the new-build Diving Support Vessel KREUZ CHALLENGER
I started working in the Mersey Docks in Liverpool in 1983, not the easiest of places considering my Canadian accent and 4 million unemployed in Britain at the time. Passion will take you anywhere though.
