When and where was your first dive ?

My first dive was at Whale Island, Vietnam in 2011

What made you want to become a professional diver ?

Having enjoyed my courses so much I decided I wanted to help new students get as much out of diving as I have.

Favourite type of diving ?

Technical diving, without a doubt. The added equipment and procedures provide a whole new aspect and keep me challenged.

Best Dive ?

There’s too many to count but one of the most memorable was seeing Hammerhead and Thresher sharks in Egypt in 2013.

Dream diving destination ?

The Great Barrier Reef, Australia. I’ll get there one day!!

Favourite piece of dive equipment and why ?

Mask. Without a mask I wouldn’t be able to see. 

Favourite Marine life ?

I don’t have a favourite but sharks, seals and clown fish are all contenders.There’s too many to count but one of the most memorable was seeing Hammerhead and Thresher sharks in Egypt in 2013.If you could choose any buddy who would it be ?

If you could choose any buddy who would it be ?

Sir David Attenborough. The man is a legend. I think he would be a fascinating person to dive/talk with.

What is your next diving goal ?

To do a cage dive with sharks in New Zealand.

Best water related joke ?

Why was the sand wet? Because the sea weed.
