About

Bio

My goal is to grow businesses and help teams deliver unique and compelling products or services that empower the customer’s experience.

Current Mission: Entrepreneurship

With the power of Entrepreneurship, I bring to life novel ideas using the Lean Startup method and my wide range of experience.

I’m interested in Web Application Development for Software-as-a-Service business models preferably using Machine Learning and Data Visualization (using D3.js, Chart.js, & three.js).

I founded a Paris based startup, Computation Hub which focuses on digitalisation for Oil & Energy companies.

Past Life: Subsea Engineering

As a Chartered Mechanical Engineer with over ten years experience in the Upstream Oil & Gas industry, I’ve successfully delivered over 30 subsea engineering projects acting in different roles including Project Engineer, Senior Engineer and Project Manager. Clients that I’ve worked for include: (Operators) Anadarko, BP, GRTgaz, Maersk Oil, Petrobras, Shell, Talisman, TOTAL, (EPCI Contractors) Heerema Marine Contractors, Saipem, Technip, Modec and South Offshore.

This experience has given me the opportunity to design, analyse and install multi-billion dollar shallow and deepwater offshore oil & gas systems located in the North Sea, West of Africa, Asia, Western Australia, Offshore Brazil and the Gulf of Mexico.

Additionally, as a Team Leader, I maintain meaningful B2B relationships with representatives of large multinationals Oil & Gas companies worldwide.

Investing

I’m also interested in investing. I’ve held a small amount of shares in Apple, Tesla, TOTAL and Running Heroes.
