I entered the maritime security world in 2009, becoming Intelligence Officer for Neptune Maritime Security (now the NeptuneP2P Group). In 2012, became piracy editor for SomaliaReport.com and in 2013 became editor of MarsecReview.com and intelligence consultant for CSO Alliance, which I left in 2019. I currently work with another UK maritime security firm as a consultant and have an interest in a cyber security concern in the UK.
