About me

Recreational and Technical diving Instructor with a passion for all underwater environment from warm water to extremely cold, from beautiful and colourful wall to Deep Wreck penetration or old Flooded mines, on Open circuit or CCR I'm always up for a dip in my favorite element!

As a PADI and IANTD Instructor I can teach the whole range of courses from Bubblemakers to TEC 50 and most specialties including Sidemount, ART+ and Cave Diving.

I am located in Tallahassee, Florida where I work with Wakulla Dive Center and own the Tec Dive Center TecMonsters (www.tecmonstersdiving.com)

I offer courses in several European destinations like Malta, Ibiza and Algarve for those who prefer to not jump in the challenging (but wonderful) UK waters.
