When and where was your first dive?
My first real dive was in Ras Katy, Red Sea, Egypt, in 2004.
What made you want to become a professional diver?
After completing my Rescue Course at Reefers and Wreckers, the instructors spurred me on to be a Divemaster, but once I had reached that stage, I went all the way to Instructor and love teaching at all levels.
Favourite type of diving?
I love all diving, but especially if it’s clear, blue and warm.
Wolf Island, Galapagos – Whale Sharks, Hammer Heads, Galapagos Sharks, Eagle Rays, Dolphins and Turtles, all on one dive.
Dream diving destination?
Too many places in the world to have only one dream destination, but next place is likely to be Indonesia.
Favourite piece of dive equipment and why?
All my Apeks regulators, they breath so easily.
Favourite marine life?
Frog Fish, because they are so ugly that they are beautiful and the Clown Trigger Fish, because it should not be designed like that.
If you could choose any buddy who would it be?
My permanent buddy Jo (or Angelina Jolie)
