of his Electrical Engineering Technologist degree at BCIT in Vancouver
B.C. and working for International Submarine Engineering for a short
period Doug decided to broaden his horizons and took a job in the
North Sea operating ROVs for SubSea. Since this time he has been
operating ROVs around the world, although primarily in the North
Sea, for various companies, while pursuing his passion for mountains
Currently dividing his time between Verbier and Basel, Switzerland,

study. Recent trips have taking him from the mountains of China
and India to Patagonia and onto the Antarctic where he sailed a
tall ship from Ushuia to the Antarctic and back.
He is also enrolled
in a Masters program studying Environmental Decision making while
now bringing his travels closer to home and exploring European biking
and climbing areas.
Primarily involved with construction projects he has a broad base
of knowledge and experience in all aspects of ROV construction work
and survey work.
