    PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor - Scuba Diving since 2016

         Growing up in Upstate New York, I spent most of my time hiking in the summers and snowboarding in the winters. It wasn't until I was on vacation in Belize that I discovered the wonders of scuba diving. As soon as I took my first few breaths under the surface I was hooked. Soaring through underwater canyons and exploring the reefs below the surface is truly a remarkable experience that never seems to get old.  

         After spending some time diving in Belize, Mexico as well as the United States, I decided to  make the move to Key Largo and join the diving community here.      After completing the IDC here at Rainbow Reef Dive Center, I was fortunate enough to be given an opportunity to join the team! 

         Being able to introduce people to the wonders of diving is an absolute dream.
