Hi Tony, 

Yes that's something I'd definitely be interested in. 
My factory is in molendinar on the Gold Coast.
As far as a resume, I'll give you a quick brief then type something  up a little later. My baby boy is unwell and it's nearly bath time.
I started a boat building apprenticeship  in Sydney harbour at Ferguson's marina.
I then finished my apprenticeship  with boasted on the Central Coast where we built a 105ft carbon fibre trimaran for the sultan of Oman. I was taken to Oman to help with the assembly of the beams to hulls and final fit out.
I travelled to the UK where I was apart of the Volvo Ocean race vo65s. Based at Green Marine in Southampton.
From there I continued my travels and worked in Dubai for premier composites. 
I spent a brief 3 months in San Francisco helping out with the America's cup build.
Upon my return I started my own business  and helped out with the buod of tr42 venom.
I run my own business now, Hybrid Composites and are currently building  a 32 foot fully carbon infused offshore race boat.
Cheers
Dan
