Chandler Comerford's Biography

As a former US Navy SEAL Officer, Chandler Comerford is a consultant in the oil and gas industry and a father of three, Chandler shares this message…. Everyone is capable of more than they think.

Using examples from his past to articulate his points and providing insight into the world of the US Navy SEALs, Chandler outlines three tools that will assist participants discover what they are capable of. Chandler grew up in Maine, in the North East of the United States.  Originally a guitarist in a blues band, the course of Chandler’s life was changed when his drummer showed him a knife that was once owned by a Navy SEAL. 

Feeling the call to service, Chandler applied and was appointed by his congressman to attend the United States Naval Academy where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Bs) in Oceanography (With Merit) in 1995.

A collegiate boxer, Chandler saw Maximum Security Prisons from the inside where he boxed inmates in preparation for the National Collegiate Boxing Association (NCBA) championships.  Chandler was a three-time NCBA All-American and a National Boxing Champion. 

One of 16 Naval Academy graduates selected to attend Basic Underwater Demolition School (BUD/s) / SEAL Training, Chandler graduated training with BUD/s Class 202 prior to being assigned to SEAL Team ONE in Coronado California.

Chandler spent 6 years at SEAL Team ONE deploying three times to locations throughout South East Asia and the Middle East where he was engaged in capacity building for numerous nations’ Special Forces units.

Chandler left the navy and moved to Perth in July 2001 where he has worked in the oil and gas industry as a consultant for the past 17 years and completed risk assessments for numerous Australian “Vital National Installations” during which time he obtained two Australian Innovation Patents related to the quantification of IT security risk. Since living in Australia he’s worked as a facilitator, trainer and strategic risk consultant for 17 years.

Chandler writes regularly and has been published by the Blackstone Society (Blackbird Publication) in a feature designed to assist University of Western Australia (UWA) Law Students better manage wellness issues.

Chandler has also developed and facilitated Rights of Passage (RoP) programs designed to assist young people with intellectual disabilities to recognise their strengths and develop “Team”.

With wide ranging experience in the military, as a consultant and as a father of three, Chandler offers a unique perspective on the capabilities that we all possess – delivering it in a grounded, thoughtful and engaging manner.
