PADI Master Instructor 199465
Robert started diving in 2004 after moving to Las Vegas to work as an EMT-Intermediate. Shortly after his move, his Supervisor, who is also a Diving Instructor invited him to join her PADI Open Water class that she had starting soon. Shortly after hitting the water, he never looked back.
Diving has become more than a hobby for Robert. It is now a lifestyle. Robert progressed through the ranks of the PADI system of education and achieved the ranking of Master Instructor. In 2012, only 3% of all PADI members held this distinctive rating, and has now begun working with PADI Managers on his application for the Course Director Training Program
Robert currently holds Instructor ratings in many specialties and holds ratings as a Decompression Proceedures diver and Advanced Nitrox Diver through TDI and IANTD. He is currently rated to dive to 180 feet, using custom blends of gas and oxygen to aid in decompression.
Additionally, he is an Artist Handler and Safety Diver for Cirque du Soleils "O" at the Bellagio. Collectively he has logged over 400 open water dives and nearly 2500 hours underwater.
