- My Summary
I am a PADI Course Director who is passionate about our oceans and our waters. I took my first dive in the Virgin Islands in the mid 1980's. At the time I knew I wanted to do something in my life that related to the oceans. Years later I decided that the degree I had hoped to pursue, Marine Biology, was just not going to be possible. In 2005 I found that by becoming a PADI Divemaster and later a Scuba Instructor I was able to share my passion for the ocean with new divers and with my friends and family.
A few years back my wife, who is a Master SCUBA Diver and a PADI Divemaster, found that she loves sea turtles and began to follow all the issue related to turtles protection, naturally I followed.
Through my role as a Scuba Instructor I hope to continue to educate new divers, certifed divers and non-divers alike about the perils our oceans are in, and how we can each do our part to help. I have several children and hope that all our efforts will allow their childrens children to benefit from our oceans and to see the beauty below the surface of the water.
