Tim is one of Kedge’s newest Accredited Surveyors, alongside working for Kedge Tim runs his own marine consultancy/maintenance business.

Based on the East Coast of Tasmania, Tim started his marine career in dredging before becoming a Deck Officer for Teekay Shipping. This work covered many Australian blue water vessels where the focus was primarily on fuel tankers.

Interest was later changed from class vessels to Australian Domestic Vessels, where Master <35m and MED 2 qualifications were obtained.

A qualified trainer and assessor, Tim has lectured at the Australian Maritime College and still has a strong interest in the professional training of domestic seafarers.

A keen kayaker, recreational boat user and diver, Tim is passionate about everything to do with the ocean where his personal interest lies in sustainability of resources and reducing carbon emissions.

Kedge provided Tim with the steppingstone into Marine Surveying where he plans to continue to build his vessel knowledge and further his career under the guidance and leadership of a strong and professional team.
