My Summary

I started diving in 1997 in lakes in Quebec, Canada getting my initial Open Water certification from ACUC. I then continued to dive recreationally in Quebec and during vacations in the Caribbean.

I got back into diving seriously in the winter 2011 with a Refresher course before a trip to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, where I also did my Advanced Open Water certification. Upon my return, I continued with my Rescue course as well as various specialities to obtain my Master Scuba Diving rating. I continued to dive regularly in Switzerland (where I was living at the time) as well as dive trips to the Mediterranean and the Red Sea.

I decided to continue learning about my passion by doing my Divemaster training. While I was studying I learnt that my HR position was being abolished due to economic crisis, and I decided it was the perfect opportunity to change my life and become a dive professional. I did my Open Water Instructor certification in Switzerland and then moved to Thailand where I pursued my training with with my MSDT and IDC Staff.

My current goal is to become a Master Instructor, and to continue sharing my passion!
