"I travel around the world offering Technical, cave and Rebreather training and expeditions.
I have been the Technical Director of Pro-Tech since 2001 and have bases with
full logistical support in the Philippines, Thailand, Mexico and Europe."

This page is aimed at providing a brief history on my diving activities to date as well as an overview of my training and professional qualifications.

I have been involved in diving since 1991. I have been a full time dive professional since the late 90's. I am a passionate technical diving Instructor Trainer specializing in teaching and promoting safe technical diving and have trained over 1000 divers and instructors across all levels both recreationally and technically, I have been teaching technical diving on a full time bases since 2001 for several of the worlds leading training agencies. I am now able to offer training at all levels from Intro technical level to Trimix Cave CCR as an active Instructor trainer I am also able to certify instructors at all levels. I have run, and owned dive centers in both Europe and SE Asia. I have accumulated over 5,000 dives in all sorts of environments. Over this time I have created an intense fascination for deep wrecks, closed circuit rebreathers and cave diving. I now fully enjoy the opportunity to share my passion with others in providing first class technical diver training and trips.

Over the years I have been lucky enough to have dived all over the world including many destinations in Asia, Australia, Europe and the US, I have dived some of the worlds greatest wrecks and caves in these areas, I continue to revisit these places along with looking for new dive sites to explore around the world. I also enjoy traveling to new places shooting stills images and generally spending time with new people from all cultures and walks of life.

Over the last decade my life has been devoted to diving and training divers from all over the world. I have had the pleasure of meeting some very nice like minded folk, I have also seen how this world has changed from a club style atmosphere to a multi million dollar leisure industry but the fact remains I absolutely love diving and traveling thus enjoy to share my adventures and discovery and I don't always need a course fee to share my passion. Looking forward to meeting you sometime soon on my travels.
