The sea has always surrounded my life, ever since growing up on sunny islands. Starting with childhood duck dives I loved exploring the tropical seas. When I learned SCUBA diving in 1989 my life truly changed as I became a regular visitor of the underwater world. Following a successful corporate career I became a full-time dive pro in 2013.
I am PADI recreational instructor, a Technical and Rebreather diver, and a freediver. My diving career has brought me to the Caribbean and SE-Asia, and I have held instructor and manager positions. I also have extensive crew experience following a year on an expedition sailing vessel.
As an experienced dive pro and crew member I can offer a variety of services.
TEACHING – PADI courses up to Divemaster.
GUIDING – Providing an excellent experience for all divers up to rebreather level.
MANAGEMENT – Experienced and proficient with marketing, sales and operations.
EXPEDITIONS – Leading dive operations in remote conditions.
CREW – Qualified and experienced sailor.
The driving factor in my career is being the professional that creates the difference for both guests and dive operations.
Customer satisfaction is more than just a business term for me. It is the true enjoyment of seeing guests having a great diving and vacation experience.
I am grateful that so many guests, as well as employers, have taken the effort to leave me some amazing feedback.
Since 2013 I have been working as a dive instructor, crew and manager worldwide. My career shows over 1,000 dives as a dive professional, 150 PADI student counts up to Divemaster level, and over 7,000 miles sailing on open ocean.
