    PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer - Scuba Diving since 2012

    • Sidemount Diver Instructor

    I grew up in the hollar of West Virginia. Always loved being in the water. While in college I joined my Scuba Club and got hooked. I was an Intern here at Rainbow and learned so much. If you're interested in becoming an Intern I'll gladly talk your ear off. I love being in the water and teaching people what I love to do.
