- My Summary
Having studied Bsc Zoology (hons) degree at University I have always been fascinated with the underwater world and it is the reason I became a diver. Since my first dive this passion has grown exponentially and I continue to learn new things about the marine life present in an area through observation and research. I am currently a PADI Staff Instructor and Tec50 diver.
I have been a passionate advocate of Project AWARE organizing many beach and reef clean ups at the dive schools I have worked along with getting involved with local coral nurseries and conservation projects. During my time in Thailand and Australia I was the appointed Marine Biologist of the Dive Centre and gave many marine talks and presentations to increase knowledge of local divers and promote local and global action in defending our oceans from the perils of humanity.
