About Chris

Scuba diving is transformative, and I want to share the experience with as many people I can. Diving makes your life better. It exposes you to a realm few people get to see in person and changes your perspective on the world we live in.

Choosing your instructor is the most important dive training decision you'll make. Some instructors have been all over the world and can bring you an international perspective. Some instructors are experienced technical divers or cave divers who can show you that path. Currently I'm exclusively a recreational diver and I dive locally -- mostly in Florida -- as often as I can. My specialty is teaching and my goal is to help you become a diver, not simply to teach you a set of skills.

If you want to learn, I will do whatever I can to teach you. I've helped students overcome swimming deficiencies, discomfort with water up their noses, understanding dive theory, and trouble with specific diving skills. I believe diving is for everyone who is medically fit to dive. You can read about the influences on my teaching below.

Teaching Experience

I love teaching, and I have devoted the majority of my professional career to it. A common thread in my teaching experience is a focus on building foundations for students who are new to a field or activity.
