What set the hook:

Many years ago, I had an opportunity to observe a Navy SEAL conduct a scuba diving demonstration in a pool. This was so impressive! The scuba diver demonstrated his ability to breathe underwater and exited the pool with all his equipment. In my eyes, the Navy Seal was like a “supernatural being” coming out of the water. It was at that moment that I could only imagine what the scuba diver experienced underwater. I knew from that point that I would one day be part of the scuba diving adventure.


I never lost sight of wanting to be an experienced scuba diver. In 2015, I found the most opportune time to start my scuba diving adventure and Signature Scuba was there for me. The Signature Scuba staff welcomed me from the start of my training, has continually provided support in all my scuba diving education, and continues to challenge me in my desire for continuous scuba diving improvement and adventure. Scuba diving has created opportunities to have life-long friends, continually creates amazing experiences underwater, and provides an opportunity to share my training and adventures with others.


Certifications: Open Water Diver, Advanced Open Water Diver, Emergency First Aid – Primary and Secondary Care, Rescue Diver, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Deep Diver, Underwater Navigator, Delayed Surface Marker Buoy, Enriched Air Diver, Master Scuba Diver, Dry Suit Diver, Night-Limited Visibility Diver, Full Face Mask Diver, Public Safety Diver, Introduction to Tech Diver, Advanced Nitrox Diver



As a PADI and SDI Divemaster, my first goal is to support the success and confidence of all students in the classroom, in pool sessions, and in the ocean for all levels of scuba diving. The opportunity to share my knowledge and experiences for the safety of those who want to be part of this adventure is always a pleasure. Another goal of mine is to continue my scuba diving education through technical diving certifications and scuba diving instruction to improve my knowledge, skills, and abilities for the benefit of others. I look forward to seeing you out there!
