I'm a professional diver with 16 years experience in teaching divers and managing dive stores in Queenstown & Wanaka, NZ.
I've also spent several months working as a dive instructor, skipper or commercial diver in South Australia/Queensland and regularly lead international dive expeditions.
A qualified service technician for most scuba equipment brands if I can't fix it, it's time you bought a new one.
I believe my varied background and experience combined with a my constant desire for more knowledge make me a valuable asset.
