  • My NAUI Bio

    I was raised around diving and divers as my dad was a saturation diver and a dive instructor. I nearly became a commercial diver myself but got pulled into Aerospace instead. I was certified in 2005 and have done most of my diving in Southern California. I am averaging about 80 dives per year, was certified through Master Diver with NAUI, then took the Los Angeles Counties Advance Divers Program, then GUE Fundamentals.

    Eventually I took the Los Angeles County Underwater Instructors Course and became an LA County Instructor and a NAUI Instructor. My teaching method is based upon LA County methods and some technical fundamentals. I only teach private lessons, my bar is set high, my classes are long and cover a lot of material (beyond the standards) and require a lot dives. My last advanced student had about 40 hours of classroom and 21 dives under his belt before getting his advanced card. I usually volunteer my time and only ask my students to cover my cost. Call me crazy.
