I’m now a PADI-certified Divemaster and Assistant Instructor Candidate. “Divemaster” is a professional certification allowing me to lead certified divers on dives, instruct refresher courses, and assist in teaching Open Water Diver courses. I started the Divemaster program for two reasons: 1) to become a better diver and 2) be prepared to manage the challenges and risks of diving on film sets at which water scenes are being shot. I’m so happy with the results that I’ve immediately signed up to on to become a PADI Assistant Instructor.
In the near future, I hope to organize group dive trips to the Caribbean and elsewhere, as well as use my skills in film and tv, as the opportunity arises.
