I wanted to start diving after seeing scuba divers while snorkeling in Hawaii. I thought it was so cool they could get more immersed in the wildlife and stay underwater a lot longer than snorkeling. I got certified in 2012 on Catalina Island and I immediately knew I wanted to become a diving pro. It’s my goal to get as many people as I can to experience the diving world and share the same love for it as I do. I love diving because not only because I get to explore new environments, but I also love meeting all the people I have along the way. The diving world is a special community, and whether it’s the close friends you make at your local dive shop or the people you meet on dive trips, you’ll form relationships and make memories that will last you a lifetime.
My favorite cold water site will always be Catalina, as it holds a special place in my heart. My favorite warm water site is Cozumel, where I saw my first sea turtle while diving.
