    PADI IDC Staff Instructor - Scuba Diving since 1991

    When I dive, I am at peace. On land, only my dog can create a similar feeling. 

     

    Before becoming a scuba instructor, I helped high school students in my home town of New York City prepare for college entrance exams. I now get to combine my passions for teaching and diving. What a great thing!

     

    I love working with children and teenagers, as well as adults. I am also a PADI Adaptive Techniques instructor and believe that diving is not just for people without disabilities!
