Manager / PADI Course Director #460782
Born and raised in Australia, I was lucky enough to spend much of my childhood enjoying barbeques on the beach and riding the waves along the coast of Sydney. Post college, as I entered into the world of nine-to-five, my passion for the water became lived through my screensaver (perhaps you are feeling the same). I decide to pack my bags and see what was out there and have never looked back!
While working as a cook on a liveaboard in Egypt, I saw the opportunity to continue on my path of international citizenship and beach bumming with colleagues who were teaching diving. I burnt one more pot of water trying to boil it and heading off to Koh Tao, Thailand to take my IDC. Over the next 16 years, I traveled the world on the back of teaching PADI dive courses.
Now I have the pleasure of representing Sunshine Divers as PADI Course Director and Training/Operations Manager. I have been privileged enough to have trained thousands of PADI divers from beginner Open Water divers to the professional ratings of PADI Divemaster, Open Water Scuba Instructor, Specialty Instructor, Master Scuba Diver Trainer and Master Instructor. I go to the office everyday but haven’t worked a minute since I took my IDC and I hope that you have a similar experience!
