Diving Experience

  • Started diving in Hawaii in 98, became very interested in technical diving and wanted to pursue more in-depth and challenging training. Found GUE:)
  • GUE opened up the doors of Mexico cave diving, something I had always been fascinated about.
  • I always strive to be as good of an educator possible, and the best way to achieve that is to never stop learning myself.
