I came ashore to work for a leading international marine law firm for next 15 years. I spent periods in London, Guildford and Singapore. I handled a broad range of wet and dry cases but my primary role was marine investigator & consultant.
I became an independent investigator and consultant at the end of 2004. This allowed me to take on expert witness work in addition to my casualty and consultancy work.
I obtained my UK Class 1 (Master Mariner) Certificate of Competency in 1988. Since becoming an independent consultant I have continued to update my marine and investigative professional knowledge. In 2016 I obtained BTEC7 Advanced Professional Certificate in Investigative Practice (APCIP).
