I have starting navigating in 1999 and gained 10 years of seagoing experience aboard various types of vessels (OBO carriers, container carriers, OBO carriers, LNG carriers, oil/product/chemical tankers, VLCC, fruit juice carrier).

My most recent position was 2nd officer on bulk carriers where I was in charge of passage planning, ECDIS / electronic publications updates, publication and paper charts updates, maintenance of navigational watch, GMDSS equipment maintenance, external audits and provided assistance to Chief Officer with ballast and cargo operations.

Before that, I have worked as 3rd officer for almost 6 years. During that period I was in charge of maintenance of lifesaving and fire-fighting equipment, external audits, paper charts and publications updates. I assisted Chief Officer with ballast and cargo operations and 2nd Officer with passage planning. I was also in charge of maintenance of GMDSS equipment.

Besides above mentioned experience I would like to emphasize that I am self motivated hard worker, dedicated, responsible, constant learner, organized team member with excellent leadership quality, loyal and reliable person, focused, flexible, and all-rounder deck team member. My hobbies are sports (swimming, water polo, diving, fishing, football, basketball, table tennis, mountains climbing)

I am looking for long-term contract in a professional and friendly environment. Work-wise, I would like to gain new knowledge and experience which would enable my further professional growth.
