- My Summary
I am a PADI Master Instructor and I live and work in the Cayman Islands. I am employed by Go Pro Cayman as the companies Training Coordinator. Here I oversee the long term diving Internships alongside experienced PADI Course Director Ash Mcknight. In my time here in Cayman i have taught hundreds of students in a wide range of PADI courses. Showing these people the underwater world for the first time is something that i enjoy immensley.
I am also Go Pro Cayman's designated Project AWARE Coordinator, I regualrly organise Reef Clean up's for earth day and also for the dive for debris program. I alongside Ash Mcknight organised the Big Shark Shout Out during the month of April 2012. Here we raised the issue so the general public knows first hand the plight of the sharks in our oceans. The event was a big success.
In The Cayman Islands we have issues with the Invasive Lionfish that are all over our reefs, we here in the Caymans have taken a pro active stance on this and we are actullay organising Lionfish culling dives. On our last dive we caught 105!! We will keep up the good work and continue to fight for a greener cleaner cayman!
