Type of diving:
I am a TDI Instructor Trainer covering both open circuit and rebreather diving. My passion is wreck diving and I’m particularly interested in the historic aspect of wrecks. I also love teaching technical divers and passing on some of my enthusiasm and knowledge to other divers.

Best diving experience:
Diving HMS Hermes is one of my best diving experiences. The Hermes was the first custom built aircraft carriers and so is an incredibly historic ship. It has not been dived very much despite that fact that it is very well preserved and lies in 53m of water off the east coast of Sri Lanka.

Numbers of dives per year:
250 dives per year
