The closer you get to real matter, rock air fire and wood, boy, the more spiritual the world is.
Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums

I believe scuba diving is the yoga of the ocean and being underwater is the ultimate mindful meditation.  When I’m practicing yoga and diving I focus on my breathing and aim to relax my body to find the most effortless movement possible.  In addition to the inward journey, diving connects me with life underwater.  Learning about the oceans and interacting with the animals that live there has opened my eyes and shown me how connected we all are.  Even small choices on land, like using a straw, can have a huge impact on the animals in the sea.  The fate of the animals in the ocean is humanity’s fate as well.

At the moment I am working and diving out of Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas.  My job is a blessing as it allows me to spend a great deal of time with sharks.  Sharks are dear to my heart and I’m fortunate to get to introduce divers to these gorgeous creatures on a daily basis.

I am a PADI certified instructor.  If you’d like to learn how to dive with me I can help you become a certified diver.  If you are already certified and would like to learn more or be guided on fun dives I can also take you diving.  I also specialize in underwater photography and videography.

Please contact me if you are interested in diving.  I’d love to help get you started!
