SSI Instructor Trainer
Sea School Instructor
CERT IV Trainer and Assessor
I started my dive journey over 20 years ago, completing my Open Water Course back home in New Zealand. Inspired by my instructor and recognizing the benefits of the SSI system I continued my training through to instructor level and enjoyed many years working all around the world in both recreational and semi-commercial roles.
The last six years have been spent training and developing new dive professionals through the SSI system and I now get to see them enjoying the lifestyle and experiences that becoming a dive professional brings.
As a Cert IV Trainer I am able to teach government accredited courses including Workplace First Aid, Recreational Boat and PWC Licensing, Marine Radio, Shipboard Safety, Coxswains, Master <24m and Marine Engine Driver.

After getting bitten badly by the SCUBA bug I decided to quit the rat-race in London and have spent the last 9 years working as a Dive Instructor!
Since then I have been lucky enough to work on the Great Barrier Reef, Sydney Harbour and managed dive operations in the Fiji Islands.
Despite having completed over 2,500 dives all over the world, I am still blown away every time I visit the Great Barrier Reef!
I love everything about diving and am so grateful I get to share that passion with people from all over the world.

I learned to dive on Magnetic Island in 2012, and saw a poster for a Divemaster Internship, promoting an exciting new career and lifestyle, so I signed up straightaway with Nick. After achieving my SSI Dive Con rating I went on to complete 3 seasons working as an Assistant Instructor in Ios, Greece, which was amazing.
In 2016, I decided to take the next step and become a Dive Instructor back home with Pro Dive Magnetic Island.
I love everything about diving and enjoy being able to share my passion with new and experienced divers!
I did my open water course in 2016 in Melbourne and it was on the first day of my course I realised that I wanted to do this as a job. But with the Melbourne weather being so cold I decided to move to tropical Queensland where I started an Instructor Internship with Pro Dive. Since becoming an instructor not only do I get to work in an unreal office but it has also opened up so many other opportunities like getting my commercial boat tickets.
For me every dive is just as amazing as the last even if I have been to that dive site many times before. I don’t think being able to breathe underwater will ever get old!
I love seeing my students faces after diving for the first time and remembering that same feeling.
I first learned to dive while backpacking around Thailand in Koh Tao. Having signed up only for a single fun dive originally. I think it was around 2 minutes into the dive that I realised I wanted to do more. I immediately signed up for the Open Water Course once back to shore and then my Advanced Open Water Course after that.
I’m now taking part in a Divemaster Internship with Pro Dive to improve my skills both in and out of the water.
Diving has opened an entirely new world to me and I’m so excited to be able to help share that with others.
I learned to dive when I was 12 on the island of Jersey in the UK. In the nippy British water and extremely limited visibility I wasn’t too ecstatic about my first dive experience. However, in 2015 my mum swept me off to the Maldives where I did my Advanced Open Water and fell in love with the underwater world.
Since then, I have been lucky to dive some incredible reefs around the world and my curiosity has even led me to complete a degree in Marine Biology!
I am now taking the next step in my dive journey and doing my Divemasters with Pro Dive, where I get to spend my days underwater, enjoying all the beautiful marine life the GBR has to offer!
