About us...


It was 1999 when I learnt to dive in Egypt, and it was love at first breath. It was very soon after this initial underwater experience that I decided to live the life of a PADI Instructor.  Since leaving England in 2002, I have been fortunate enough to live and teach diving in many fantastic and exotic countries.  Having completed my Divemaster course in Thailand and my IDC in Indonesia, I have worked in New Zealand, Australia, six different locations in Thailand, Cambodia, three different locations in Indonesia, two different locations in Egypt, The Philippines, and on a liveaboard in Palau.  I have met many amazing people and gathered many contacts throughout the diving world, and beyond.  These contacts are a very helpful resource for my IDC candidates looking to work in paradise after their IDC.  


Becoming a PADI Pro changed my life forever, and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. I can help you make that change too…
