PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor - Scuba Diving since 2018
Full FaceMask Instructor
I grew up in the Northwoods of Wisconsin and spent my summers swimming and enjoying the cool water lakes and rivers. I joined the Marine Corps and began to furthermore pursue my love for the water. Marines are amphibious by nature and much of our training involves water survival. I was exposed to the ocean for the first time in Southern California. Shortly afterwards I was stationed in North Carolina alongside the magnificent Atlantic Ocean. For the first time in my life I had the opportunity to be around the ocean everyday and I enjoyed training in and around the water. During my military career I pursued an extensive amount of water survival training advancing to become a Marine Corps Instructor of Water Survival and an American Red Cross Lifeguard. After honorably separating from active duty I pursued recreational scuba diving through an opportunity provided by our local veterans group. Completing my Open Water Scuba Certification was one of the best moments in my life! I immediately began to further advance my training, much of it here with Rainbow Reef CDC. I set a goal and became a PADI Open Water Scuba Diving Instructor because I have a passion for the water and teaching others. My main goal is to share my passion with others by providing education and training so they too can effectively gain the skills required to safely enjoy all the natural wonders of our beautiful underwater world! Come visit us here at Rainbow Reef to pursue all of your Scuba adventures! I'm excited to go diving with you!
