My Summary

I’ve always loved the ocean and playing in the waves, either above or below the surface. I’m always planning my next trip to swim, body board, surf, dive – you name it. Diving has always been fascinating to me; it opens up the other 70% of this planet that is otherwise hidden. I’m grateful that I can get a glimpse of the creatures beneath the waves. From the first Garibaldi I encountered on my initial open water dive, I was hooked. Becoming a Rescue Diver not only gave me a greater confidence to enjoy diving but has been valuable in my role at Project AWARE Foundation. I joined the foundation (in August 2004) with four years of professional dive industry experience under my weight belt, working for PADI and Diving Science & Technology in a variety of capacities. I was eager to use my experience and skills to take action against marine debris and am passionate about spreading the conservation message to help safeguard our precious ocean.
