I've been working fo Costa Cruise line for over 10 years, from cadet officer up to 1st Officer, in 2016 I left the cruise ship industry to became a Captain on board m/b Leone and then m/y Dafra, right now I'm looking for a new adventure to keep going at sea, my first passion. I can't imagine not working on board.
  • Competencies
    During my yachting experience I've learned how important is to understand as fast as possible, what your on board guests wants from you, and to give them that always in a very professional way. Been on board without a chief engineer made my maintenance skill stronger, as I've been working on engine maintenance as well.
  • Soft skills
    Working on board is challenging, and I love that, but anyone of us can work better and easier using teamwork, learning from each other, helping team mates makes us stronger.On board we are a family.
  • Organizational skills
    Crew management, booking management according weather forecast, gasoline and water bunker management according with booking schedule, voyage passage plan according with guest, special food and beverage management up to guest request.
  • Technical skills

I'm always working at the highest professional level, always giving my best and all my seriousness on the job.
