PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor, PADI Speciality Instructor & EFR Instructor.

I completed my first scuba dive – the PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience – whilst on holiday in 2004.  I knew then that I wanted to become a "proper" scuba diver. 


Eleven years later I turned 40 and decide that it was about time I got on with it!


After completing my PADI Open Water course, I went straight on to do the Advanced Open Water course and then as many specialities as I could get to. 


On family holidays I would always try to squeeze in a dive or two and have dived in a variety of different environments, from wrecks off of the Canary Islands, to warm prehistoric caves in Florida, to the much colder waters of the Farne Islands (home to a seal colony) and I have even dived in one of the world’s largest aquariums!

After becoming a Master Scuba Diver in 2020, I decided that I wanted to get into diving professionally and I went on to get my Dive Master qualification the following year. 

I became a PADI Assistant Instructor and got a great deal of satisfaction from introducing people to scuba diving and to the fantastic community of divers that permeates every walk of life, this in turn led me to become a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor. That was a great adventure, which you can read about in my BLOG

I have made many friends through diving and am very proud to dive with Bespoke Scuba, that both my daughters have now dived with. 

I look forward to being part of your scuba diving journey.
