I started Scuba Diving when I was 16 years old and living in Mississauga, Ontario. A couple of years later during one summer off from studying Marine Biology at Dalhousie University I became a dive master at Oceans Unlimited in Quepos, Costa Rica. I loved it so much that I came back the following year to become an Open Water Instructor. I then traveled to Utila, Honduras and received my staff instructor certification at Utila Dive Center.

When Covid made traveling difficult, I decided to expand my learning and start dry suit diving here in Halifax, I was excited to explore the underwater world of my own backyard. My passion is teaching specialty courses focussing on Marine conservation. Despite being on hundreds of dives the feeling of being underwater never gets old. I enter every dive with curiosity and enthusiasm, come diving with me and I will show you how to do the same.
