Additional Info

I have been fascinated with the aquatic realm since I was a young child. My Father was a diver and I grew up reading The Ocean World of Jacques Cousteau. Since my first scuba diving experience on the Great Barrier Reef, I have been actively diving in Canada, USA, Mexico, Australia, and Egypt. I am honoured to become a GUE Instructor and share my passion for diving and protecting our precious aquatic resources. The global GUE community has given me so much and I look forward to reciprocating that gift through continued mentorship and instruction of new and experienced divers in the PNW and beyond. Thank you for your continued support, I look forward to seeing you in the water!
