I enjoyed diving from my first discover diving dive from the railing of a sail boat in Turkey.  That said I wasn’t fully comfortable diving with just my 4 O/W dives and kept active with training and pleasure dives.  Winning a free dive course at Scuba 2000 I did my rescue diver training at scuba 2000 and then did my dive master training in Turkey during a 3 week vacation with the Aegean Pro Dive Center.  On return I was grabbed by Scuba 2000 and have loved diving with you guys ever since.


My favorite dive locations are on Blackbeards Cruises off the islands of Eleuthra and the Exumas.  I love diving the blue hole and collecting smiles from all our new divers I bring with me to become my buccaneers on Blackbeards.  Annually I will migrate in the fall for at least a week to the Bahamas home of my dive soul.

More about me
I am also a ski instructor at Horseshoe Valley Ski Resort in the winter on my weekends. I love helping people overcome fear and expand their horizons. Underwater I enjoy underwater photography and videography. I also love to fly. II have been told I love adventure. I am not sure about that, I think I just enjoy fun. I love to relax reading a book in my garden or cooking something tasty to savour with my partner.
