About me


Originally a fitness instructor, personal trainer and sports development officer, I learnt to dive while travelling in 2000 and since my first breaths underwater, I decided that this was what I was destined to do! Within a year I became an Instructor and have now been teaching scuba full time in the industry for 22 years. I am passionate about the sport that has given me so many amazing experiences. Learning to Scuba dive is truly a life changing experience. I feel very lucky and privileged to have the opportunity to introduce people the wonderful sport of scuba diving.
