My NAUI Bio
I am very active in the water. I currently work with LA County Scuba on several of their programs, director of the 3R's (Rocks, Rips & Reefs) program for the Los Angeles County Underwater Unit. That program focuses on the basics- shore based skin diving. I also teach for their Advanced Diver Program (ADP) and their Underwater Instructor Certification Course (UICC).
I volunteer with the Disabled Veteran's Scuba Project which teaches veterans with Traumatic Brain Injury, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Polytrauma, Spinal Cord Injuries, Blindness just to name a few.
I teach scuba classes privately. I have worked with basic divers who were quite fearful all the way up through the leadership levels. I've worked with a variety of adaptive divers not listed above. I am also LA County and HSA certified. I believe in a good foundation based on the student's level of proficiency, comfort, and developing a solid foundation.
