I am a professional dive instructor through SDI/TDI (Instructor #25033), SNSI (Instructor #24606), and NAUI (Instructor #53783). Currently I offer technical dive training through TDI, SNSI, and NAUI TEC, and teach in a variety of environments including both fresh and saltwater.

For my day job I am a Medical Doctor  by training, working in research, and am a partner in Deep 6 Gear, a dive equipment manufacturing company. During my free time you can often find me out diving, either from the beach, from a boat, or in cave country. Currently, I live in Fort Lauderdale, FL, where I spend most of my time. My diving activities have taken me to Honduras, Indonesia, Costa Rica, Grenada in the Caribbean, the Mediterranean around Spain, and all around the Georgia, Florida, and Alabama areas.

Please take a look at my course listing for some of the courses I offer. Courses can be tailored and arranged to meet your specific training needs. If you have any questions please use my contact information on the Contact page.

About Me

My Educational Background:

M.D. – Saint George’s University – 2018
M.B.A – Saint George’s University – 2019

M.S. – Biology – Valdosta State University – 2012
Thesis: Computational Studies of the Cu-taxol Complex: An Analysis of Solubility and Stability

B.S. – Biology, minor Chemistry – Valdosta State University – 2008
B.A. – History – Valdosta State University – 2008

Dive History:

My personal dive training progression began with an open water course in Honduras, after which I took my Nitrox, Advanced, and Rescue diving courses on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Wishing to continue my dive training, I started a NAUI Divemaster internship program at my local dive shop while attending Valdosta State University. After gaining experience as a divemaster, I became a recreational instructor and technical diver, and after gaining further experience, I became a technical instructor. I offer several technical courses for experienced divers through multiple agencies, including both open circuit and closed circuit training. I am also certified for visual tank inspection through SCIDI, and am a BLS Instructor with the AHA.

Aside from direct diving activities, I have received additional certification and training including BLS, ACLS, PALS, DMAC L1 (Medical Examiner of Divers), and DMAC 2D (Physicians Training in Diving Medicine). I always enjoy expanding my base of knowledge, as it provides a wider educational experience for students.

I have previously lived in Grenada diving and teaching for two and half years. I have over 10 years of experience in the dive industry at multiple levels, from teaching all the way up to product development and manufacturing. As a technical diver I hold several certifications from multiple agencies including TDI, SNSI, NAUI, and IANTD. Certifications include but are not limited to Normoxic Trimix, Evolution/Inspiration CCR Rebreather, Optima CCR, Closed Circuit Decompression, Closed Circuit Mixed Gas Diluent (Trimix), Closed Circuit Full Trimix (Hypoxic) ,and full cave.

Course Fees

General Training Guidelines:

1.) Day listings are estimates, dive listings are minimums, courses may need to run longer to work on skills if necessary, and usually include other dives.
2.) For technical training, 1 dive needs to be conducted before the start of the course to evaluate your skills unless we have prior experience together.
3.) For technical training, student is responsible for trimix fills, oxygen fills, boat fees, site entry fees, materials, etc.
4.) For recreational training, student is responsible for boat trips, if preferred or required, and materials.
5.) Certification is separate from the course, and received once earned.
5.) If time allows we will do extra dives outside of training for additional experience, no additional fee on my part, however training takes a priority over extra experience dives.


Recreational training is done on a per day basis for $200/day.

Technical training is done on a per day basis for $250/day.

Checkout dives are done for $100.
