- My Summary
I found my passion for diving after taking the PADI Open Water Diver course and the PADI Advance Diver course on The Great Barrier Reef, Australia, while travelling the world. After getting my certifications and travelling further, I ended up in Fiji and face to face with a 5m Tiger Shark. While visiting my brother in the Philippines and completeing the PADI Rescue Diver course I realised that diving was the life for me. 2 months later i embarked on the PADI Divemaster course and following that became a PADI Instructor. Since becoming an instructor I have climbed the PADI ladder to IDC Staff Instructor and worked in Malawi, Malaysia and the Philippines where I have hopefully passed on my passion for diving to others. I am now working at Calypso Diving Boracay where I am Dive Operations Manager.
