  • Tell us what you did in a former life?

I've been a Dive Master since 18 and an Instructor since 20 years old- So not much before that other than school and working on construction sites.

  • What other places have you worked in the world?

Only Worked in the UK and Cayman. Tried to work in the US before I came to Cayman, but for some reason they wouldn't let me? Traveled to many dive destinations over the years: Hawaii, French Polynesia, Belize, Bahamas, Cozumel, Jamaica, Roatan, Turks & Caicos.....

  • What is your favorite marine life?

Sharp Nose Puffer

  • What is your favorite Cayman dive site?

  • What do you love most about the East End?

The best of both worlds - a true sleepy Caribbean Village, but only a short drive away from the cosmopolitan West side for good restaurants and entertainment.

  • Tell us a random fact about yourself?

I only planned to be in Cayman for 1 year and then return to college in the UK - 27 years later I'm still here, married to a beautiful island girl and now have two children that will hopefully take over the business one day - Never going back, sorry Mum!
