I am a union plumber/pipefitter in California. I am interested in working in the antarctic. I am single with no family ties at this time. I have over 30 years of experience in the plumbing and piping trade, including plan reading and outage planning. I am in good physical condition and would like to work in an extreme and challenging environment.
Thank You
