Marine Electronics Technician
Lower Columbia College, George Washington University, and U.S. Naval Submarine School
I have worked for the Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) aboard the JOIDES Resolution as a Marine Electronics Technician and Instrumentation Specialist since 1998. I am responsible for maintaining all of the laboratories and auxiliary equipment. This includes the downhole tools, multi sensor tracking systems, chemical lab equipment, EPC Printers, weather satellite system, hydrogen sulfide (H2S) monitoring systems, seismic equipment including towed Streamers, Fathometers and Air Guns. I also maintain the Digital Sound Velocimeter, Canon copiers, Stereo's, TV'S and VCR's.
I assisted the Carnegie Institute personnel in assembling the deep sea connectors for a prototype seismic monitoring system recently placed in 5500 meters of water near Japan. I used to work aboard several different types of Navy ships for Northrop Grumman installing various network upgrades to the fleet. Due to my two month in two month out schedule for ODP I sometimes pick up various part time commercial and military jobs.
