I am excited to be working for ICS to represent shipowner interests at IMO, with national governmental and non-governmental bodies. I feel that my appetite for knowledge coupled with my hands on experience on board and ashore will prove to be a valuable asset to ICS members and their members in developing the future maritime industry.
