- My Summary
I am a child of the sea, born in Durban on the South African East Coast. My weekends and holidays were spent on beaches swimming, body surfing, snorkeling and fishing. In 1975 I moved to Johannesburg to get more experience in my advertising career. I then discovered rivers and dams and flyfishing. A poor subsitute for the sea. But every long break was spent on a beach somewhere. In 1992 my wife and I didan OW1 course and a new and deep love was born. We expanded our diving education along the way and we educated our children. My eldest son and I are both divemasters, my wife is an advanced plus. My younger son and my daught are both OW1. We have spent many happy holidays diving together. I have dived in South Africa, Mozambique, Kenya and Australia - east and west coast.
