- My Summary
I got certified in the British Vigin Islands in 1991. It was a great experience, however, life got in the way and I only dove twice in the next 15 years. That was until I decided to move to Maui. When I arrived I needed a new career and fortunately I met a dive instructor. He got me excited about diving and I proceeded to take the necessary classes to achieve instructor. I was fortunate to be hired right after the IE and have been with Maui Dreams Dive Company for the last 7 years. I couldn't be happier. I am an IDC Staff Instructor, working on my Master Instructor to ultimately achieve Course Director. Our store is very active in clean-ups, installation and maintaining of moorings and supporting Project AWARE. I love that we can all make a difference and am committed to doing my part to help preserve our most precious resource.
