What was the first dive you did and how did it influence you to start a career in the diving industry?
From a very young age, I’ve always had a curiosity about the underwater world. In 1994 I was 19 years only and being a member of a rescue team I had the opportunity to do my first scuba dive and I got thrilled by the experience. Years later, that curiosity and the will of developing myself into something that fulfills my life with satisfaction and joy took me to the path of professional diving by the year 2000.
By 2004 I became a TDI member and since then it has been a road of challenges and accomplishments. By 2015 I reached TDI SDI Instructor Trainer level. The curiosity persists, the challenges continue and the satisfaction grows.
What do you believe is the most important trait of a professional educator and why?
In order to teach, you need to learn. Learn from everyone, be humble, share your knowledge and never stop learning.
