Fell in love with scuba watching Jacques Cousteau's Silent World on TV in the 70's.
I learned to dive with BSAC prior to BCD's and balanced regulators, relearning with PADI was a revelation and modern equipment makes scuba so easy for everyone.
No favourite scuba pastimes, love it all, if pushed wrecks are a stand out pleasure underwater. Became an instructor in 2003 and have crept up the instructor ladder steadily as the need arose within the dive centre.
Biggest pleasure is introducing new divers to the delights of the underwater world and sharing their new experiences with them.
Most enjoyable part of being a PADI Member is that there are new innovations appearing almost daily so there is always something new to learn and explore.
