"As a dive instructor on a shark diving boat I get to meet people from all over the world...I enjoy being the person to help them discover a whole new underwater world"
When and why did you start diving?
I started diving in 2004 and I did my course because I was joining an underwater videography company to film Great White sharks in South Africa. I did all my courses in a quarry and my first ocean dive in Shark Alley off of Gansbaai, South Africa. I have been addicted to diving ever since and am now a NAUI Dive Instructor.
What is your spirit fish (or mammal/reptile) and why?
I have always been attracted to the sea and my spirit fish would definitely have to be the Great White. I have been fascinated by them ever since I saw Jaws as a kid and seeing one in the wild had always been on my bucket list of things to do. Now I am fortunate enough to have worked with them for over 14 years and in 2 different locations- South Africa and Guadalupe Island and getting to change people’s perceptions about them via photography and film.
