What did you do before joining DOS?
I studied in the french institute of marine sciences INTECHMER* during 3 years.
Then I worked for more than 5 years in the cable industry (surveyor, cable repairs, cable route, site surveys, etc). I also worked as a surveyor and geophysicist in deep sea minerals exploration.
How did you join DOS?
I had followed the company’s progress for a long time and I have always wanted to get involved with them.
In 2011, I started mail exchanges with the head of the management team in order to look at recruitment possibilities and I finally got the chance to join the ship in May 2013.
Why are still working for DOS?
Working for DOS is really challenging and fascinating. Each rotation on board the R/V John Lethbridge is different from the previous one; each project is a new challenge. Since I started in DOS I have never stopped learning new skills in various domains, not only in subsea or survey but also in electronics and video for example.
I like working with DOS’s experienced people and sharing with them knowledge. Operating sonar and ROV in very deep sea conditions as we are doing is unique.
