Who better to work with you than a scuba professional and sea enthusiast?
I took my first plunge at sixteen in a very cold Canadian river at the bottom of a small waterfall chute. We were recovering contents from a flipped over raft caught in the swirling eddies. Well, to be honest… I was ‘rescuing’ a case of beer. True story!
My unorthodox introduction to scuba was far from normal but it did jump start my diving obsession – discovering all the weird places you can dive and the even weirder things you can find! For the following 17 years, I continued stealing as many minutes underwater as possible, all around the globe.
WHAT ARE MY DIVING QUALIFICATIONS?
Today, I have 2000+ dives (mostly on liveaboards) and an extensive list of qualifications. Along the way I also became a digital marketing professional, recognizing the lack of support within the dive industry. Naturally, I decided to combine my two passions and provide consulting and content services that allow scuba businesses to work smarter, not harder. Who better team up with than a lifelong diving enthusiast!
