When and where was your first dive ?
My first Open Water dive was at Capernwray on 13th August 2013.
What made you want to become a professional diver ?
I know how vulnerable a new diver feels and how easy it is for a difficult dive or uncomfortable experience to adversely influence the decision to continue or progress. I was fortunately surrounded by people who encouraged, supported and reassured me to keep trying. I believe I can be one of those motivators and by becoming a dive professional I can positively influence new and returning divers.
Favourite type of diving ?
I love all types of recreational diving but a wreck holds a particular fascination for me.
Best Dive ?
So many great dives but the wreck of the SS Thistlegorm was quite unbeatable. Face to face with a Hammerhead shark in the Red Sea was pretty special too.
Dream diving destination ?
Diving Truk Lagoon in the Pacific with an abundance of WW11 relics would certainly tick some boxes on my must do list.
Favourite piece of dive equipment and why ?
My favourite piece of dive equipment would be my log book, it’s great looking back over the dives and reminiscing.
Favourite marine life ?
I think the Sea Turtle will always captivate me, beautiful creatures.
If you could choose any buddy who would it be ?
I learnt to dive with my daughter and we have been regular diving buddies since. I wouldn’t mind tagging along on a dive with Jacques Cousteau if he was still with us.
What is your next diving goal ?
To become an experienced Dive Master.
Best water related joke ?
What do you call a fish without an eye? A fsh
