Having been brought up on the Mediterranean Island of Mallorca, I have been vastly surrounded by the yachting industry from a very young age. I have acquired a fair amount of involvement in the industry; starting as a sales executive at the biggest water sport company in the whole of the Balearics. I then decided to attain the relevant qualifications required to be able to pursue a career within the yachting industry. I started by obtaining my PWC license, as well as, my PBL2. I then went on to develop my PWC license further and decided to get my PWC Instructors license, which allowed me to qualify over 300+ students.

     Soon after that, my career started onboard a motor yacht as these qualifications set me aside from other aspiring green crew. I landed my first job on a new build 50m as a Deckhand. Within a year and a half of being on board and passing my Yachtmaster Offshore I was promoted to Bosun. Shortly after, I decided to take a more personal approach and become a captain of a Chase Boat, which is where I am today.

     This is only the beginning of my career within the industry and I hope to become a good role model for aspiring crew wanting to join the industry and achieve as much as I did in such a short period of time. 

I am a outgoing, highly motivated individual who is also very independent. I work very well amongst teams but can also work solely. I always bring a positive attitude to whatever environment I’m in, whilst also maintaining fun and exciting working conditions.
