I have been working in the Panama Maritime Authority for 7 years, doing different job positions (nautical inspector, analyst of maritime security of ships and Maritime Safety Technical Officer). Since four weeks ago I started to work as Technical Officer for the Segumar Panama department issuing technical certificates, exemptions and/or authorizations.

This incidents include kidnapping of the crew, robbery and hijacking, among others. Additionally, I was in charge of the monitoring of the ship security alarm system and the correct implementation of the ISPS code in that aspect.

In the year 2004 I studied in the Merchant Marine Academy of Panama called Escuela Nautica de Panama, in the year 2012 took a three-months course of International Maritime Conventions in Yokohama, Japan, three years ago I graduated of a Master in Science degree in the World Maritime University in Malmo, Sweden and last year 2016 I took a two-weeks course of Law of the Sea in Yeosu, South Korea.
