From Essex in the UK, after having learned to dive in 1999 I entered the dive industry in 2001. Starting part-time at local dive center Adventures in Diving, I worked up over 6 years to company director by the age of 20. During my time there I gained both recreational & technical dive instructor ratings, teaching in the UK and Egypt. I actively dived unknown UK wrecks in the North Sea at every opportunity I could get as well as the well known wrecks of SCAPA Flow. I spent as much time in the repair workshop and seminars as i could, learning the ins and outs of equipment maintenance.
I went on to manage or work as a dive technician for several dive centers all over the world. I have found myself in a variety of different dive related roles, some more unusual than others. Becoming an IMCA recognised (DOL Class II / HSE1) commercial diver in 2009 helped open up a lot of these opportunities.
The least glamorous end of the scale I was working in some of the most inhospitable places imaginable with cold water and zero visibility thrown in for free. A nicer side saw me working on underwater media projects in the UK at The Underwater Studio. This led on to a career as a show diver, dive technician and head of underwater maintenance at the world’s largest water show half way across the world in Macau.
I have authored several courses which have been agency approved with several more on the way. Proudly I have provided equipment maintenance and dive services to some of the worlds most iconic mega-yachts. Currently based in Subic Bay, Philippines, I focus now on SCUBA Service Technician training, dive services and dive training. In my spare time I still enjoy getting in the water, especially extended open circuit and closed circuit rebreather wreck dives.
