Who is?

Hi. I am a shipping company director, transport academic, author, family man and all round nice guy. I have worked as shipbroker, shipowner, freight trader and bulk charterer, in senior positions, with some of the largest and most disrespected (joke) companies in the world. Ask my advice on all things shipping and you will receive my blunt and always honest answer. Hang around to learn more about chartering and ship broker salaries, chartering and ship broker jobs, chartering and shipbroker recruitment agencies, cheap freight, maritime education, chartering and ship broker qualifications, become a ship broker, tips on how to be a successful bulk shipping executive, philosophy, Zen and the art of shipbroking, and much more.

Next writing project

Here is a major new initiative. The chance for you the readers of this blog to pick my next writing project. I have started a poll on the topic and you can start voting now.

1. "shipbroking" - the musical.
Laugh and cry your way through 4 hours of music, lyrics and interpretive dance - penned and choreagraphed by me! Set entirely in an Asian karaoke bar.

2. "Shipbrokers who have changed the world". A practical book so small that you can carry it in your wallet.

and 3.
"Our word is our Bond - all going well, weather permiting, without guarantee" - a shipbrokers perspective.

This is serious people - Help me decide..



  1. definitely the 3rd option. I would be more than happy to see agwwpwog making its way up the literary forums and daily language of millions.

  2. point of clarification. does option #1 come with a background chorus of japanese businessmen?

  3. Peter - good question. I will see what I can do!

  4. #3 hands down. #1 gets you involved with the "star" types...can you handle Branjolina? #2 leads to lawsuits...wastes time you could be surfing thru instead.

  5. If I get enough votes for number one Pamela Anderson has agreed to play one of the karaoke hostesses and Mel Brooks has agreed to produce the show.

  6. Pam is passe , # 2 - would be over in no time ..#3- is interesting to know your views & i think is challenging for you to compile it..

    so # 3 it is

  7. VS - Beyonce will swing my opinion ATDNSHINC.
    PS: Already bought the tickets for her show F1 weekend
