What do you do for a living?

Scuba Diving Instructor & General Manager at Blue Mind Divers.

How did you get into diving?

I have always loved the ocean and as a child would play with my dad’s scuba gear, pretending that I was diving. I started diving as soon as I was old enough.

What is your favorite dive destination?

Okinawa Japan, Kerama Islands.

What is your favorite marine life to dive with?

Octopus, they are extremely curious creatures and if you take the time and have patience they will interact with you.

What is your favorite part about teaching people how to scuba dive?

I enjoy the mentoring that comes with teaching Divemaster and other professional level classes. It is very rewarding to help candidates overcome stressful situations and fine-tune their skills, knowing that they will soon be teaching the next generation of divers.
