Rocco had a great Mid-contract review and he has continued to really focused on all attributes which attained his MCR scores. He is SUPER helpful and will own any tasks given. To avoid redundancy, one can see his MCR which speaks very positively about his musicianship and effort which have been consistant. Rocco has really demonstrated a lot of effort to do his best in his role and he has come a very long way musically in the 14 months that he and I have been on ships together.Rocco has been super helpful as a team player. He is always doing a bit extra to be helpful and it's been great back to back contract with him.
