Ever since my first swimming lesson as a kid, I have loved being in the water. Growing up I spent a lot of time in the waters of Florida snorkeling, fishing, swimming, surfing and once I moved to California I became a certified diver. Becoming more attached to the ocean, I started learning everything I could about diving, taking my Advanced Open Water, Rescue and Divemaster Courses in Los Angeles CA. For the next year I went gung ho in to underwater photography combining my 2 passions and adding it as one of my specialties as a commercial photographer. I spent the last 9 years honing my skills as a diver and photographer.
Once I moved back to Florida, I trained as an instructor with multiple worldwide SCUBA certifying agencies and like the Navy SEALS and NASA I decided to go with NAUI the oldest and reputable agency in the world. After receiving my NAUI Instructor credentials I started The Pirate Diving Company, with a focus on Education, Safety and Fun! So come join me at The Pirate Diving Company and let’s dive.
