Dave started out in the steamy depths of a British tanker engine-room in the late 70s. After a few years of deep sea voyages, he found his way to Canada in the engine-room of a Handy, stuck his head out one day, and thought the place seemed nice. (Of course, winter hadn’t set in yet.) After a stint in the Great Lakes bulk trade, post-maritime experience saw him spending a decade or three in operations and maintenance in the gold-mining and other resource-based fields.
Along the way, studying the convolutions of the shipping and commodity industries seemed a logical progression. He can be found hanging around the Great Lakes, dispensing occasional gems of research and analysis wisdom. He aggregates maritime and commodity news on the @SuperiorMar Twitter feed.
