I am still excited every time a new diver takes the first breath underwater, the look on their face is what makes being a SCUBA instructor the most rewarding adventure you can have.Through out my diving life I have had the chance to dive in the Philippines, Okinawa Japan, Malaysia, Singapore , Indonesia, Australia, Florida, Oregon and Washington.I am currently working at SALEM SCUBA in Salem Oregon salemscuba.com
