Summary: In 1988, from the age of 18 I worked for a consumer market research company in Cape Town, South Africa. I started as a door to door and telephonic researcher. Two years later I became the manager for the western cape region in charge of the research team. Our job was to do door to door and telephonic research projects on various consumer projects which were then transcribed and reports given to client companies with suggestions on how to move forward with the product.
I stayed with the company until around 1994. I them worked with a friend who is a marketing consultant and started up his own company.
In 1998 I sailed on a yacht delivery from S.A to the Bahamas. I then starting working on private luxury motor yachts.
In 2004 I moved to do a land-based co-ordinating job with the owner of the last yacht that I worked on. I have been with the same owner and company since then. My responsibilities include new staff training, helping to organise trips incl food prov, house-keeping etc.
