I am presently teaching in a maritime training center here in the Manila, Philippines. My expertise are in the subject: ship's engine simulator , electrical, and other technical course.
Previously, I spent my work and life onboard ship as an engine crew starting from cadet until Chief Engineer. After those time, I work in a shipping in charge in recruiting for years and on the present situation, I am into training the seafarers. I do simulations, instructor for technical courses, and manages my department on the maritime center.
My woodworking started around 2000 just for curiosity but just a bit. I continue doing this up to the present without knowing, and now I realized that is already a part of my life. I am not into wasting any green trees so I am using recycled wood. Like many others, I am looking for how to become a unique craftsman and a designer in the fields of woodworks and metalworks specially in the recycling of scraps.
