Why I Love Diving:

After watching episodes of Jacques’ Cousteau and his incredible frogmen I decided at a very young age I wanted to be part of the underwater world. I enrolled in my Open Water course in the late 1980's and have now been diving for over 20 years. I went down the professional path as an instructor much later in my diving career and have never looked back. My reward in teaching is seeing smiles from students who I take on their fist dive. I hope to pass on my passion for diving to all my students. I developed a lust for rust pretty much from my open water course onwards. Having participated in Heritage Victoria fieldworks such as corrosion research on the City of Launceston, I can also be found in my spare time planning and executing technical wreck dives or enjoying a dive around the back beach. I have planned several overseas dive trips to remote dive sites, allowing access to some spectacular wrecks such as the Mikhail Lermontov in New Zealand and Truk Lagoon in Micronesia. Come and share in my passion for diving.
