Data Rat, for Hire

Overwhelmed? You could use a second set of eyes/hands?  Based on some of these articles you think I might be able to help?  Let’s talk.  I live for this stuff and genuinely enjoy helping ship operators collect good data and helping oceanographers turn that data into useful information. I’m serious, I welcome new challenges and really would like to help.

Bringing a new vessel online?  It’s fun right?  I would welcome the chance to share with you the lessons I’ve learned over the last 8 years working with ROVs, Multibeam and Side-scan sonars, satellite communication systems, intercoms (including wireless), shipboard computer networks, data loggers, closed-circuit TV systems, shipboard entertainment networks, and HD/SD video system (collection–>distribution–>streaming–>storing/accessing).

As much as I enjoy what I do, I can’t do it for free.  My day rate depends on the job.  Can I do the job from my office in Rhode Island?  Do I need to come out the ship/site (please)?  Does the job require I go to sea (pretty please)?  All of this factors into the equation.
