PADI Master Instructor, CMAS 1* Scuba Instructor
I always wanted to be an astronaut. It could not be any simpler than that. I studied physics to understand nature and become an astronaut.
I fell in love with scuba diving because it gave me the experience of weightlessness without being in outer space. I was, at last, able to hover freely in three-dimensional space.
Since my early days in the industry, I tried to understand what fueled my obsession with diving and traveling. In the beginning -I am now certain- it was pure ego. Diving gave me the opportunity to distinguish myself, to be different. But as I carried on diving, I realized that I was fulfilling a far more profound need:
The more I dive, the more clear I see that I am part of a greater system that is interconnected and functions as a whole. The more I travel, the more conscious of this reality of oneness I become.
Astronauts experience this “overview effect” when they look back on Earth from orbit. I travel and dive to experience the same “overview effect”, the gentle embrace of Mother Sea.
I have traveled extensively around the world as a group leader (in tours that I was responsible for operation and organization).
In the past 13 years I have successfully organized more than 65 trips to various destinations (Egypt, Tanzania, Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Italy, France, Germany, UK, Spain, Switzerland, Netherlands, Cyprus, Turkey, UAE, Maldives, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, Japan, Malaysia, Palau, FS of Micronesia, French Polynesia, New Zealand, Japan, Seychelles, South Africa, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Costa Rica).
We travel to blend in with the local cultures, get familiar with the local physical environment and above all, have fun!
