Professional practices Andrew Hunt endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).


Being of a rather rebelleous nature when I was young, it was decided that I attend a Naval Training College in Southern England until I was 15 years old.


20 years sea going experience, starting as a deck apprentice in The British Merchant Navy and ending up as captain with United Arab Shipping Co. During this time I obtained my master mariners foreign going certificate as well as a Bsc. in Nautical Science. Serving in a wide variety of trades, from passenger liners, to bulk carriers, container ships and tramp cargo vessels


· 1981 – I spent one year at Hyundai Shipyard in Korea, as New Building Supt., for United Arab Shipping Co.
· 1982 – My company sent me to Brazil to assist in starting up a regular liner service between Brazil and Argentina to The Middle East. I was responsible for setting up port agencies, port operations, stevedoring contracts, ship repairers, victualling, and organizing a marketing network, to name but a few of my roles.
· 1990 – I spent two years in ship and cargo brokerage, based in Sao Paulo.
· 1991 – I was head hunted by a large Brazilian shipping agency, also based in Sao Paulo, to be the commercial manager for a large Japanese Shipping Company, responsible for overseeing, their reefer, container, bulk and car carrier services.
· 2001/2009 – Not so much by design but more through inheritance I became the joint owner and director of a large veterinary service in Itiam Bibi, Sao Paulo. Running a “microempresa” was interesting but a very steep learning curve for me, especially in the area of Labor Law.


It is my present intention to work with translations, to supply an efficient and timely service to a select client base, I have had many years experience of doing Portuguese/English translations, many legal, contractual and general financial requirements when I was working in shipping, as well as projects for port privatisation schemes and more recently I have done several translations for the legal representatives of a hospital and church network, (Financing and importation of technical equipment etc), as well as some technical translations for Dept of Health in Taubaté, SP,Brazil. This is in addition to a lot of technical projects on the Brazilian off-shore Oil & Gas industry (Technical, nautical, and environmental)


Sport is still very big on my list; I still play rugby regularly, as well as rowing, and squash.
My great love (or rather illness!) is restoring old cars; I have two Jaguar MK IIs in England.
