In 2006 I became a Rescue Diver and a Master Scuba Diver in 2009. I then started an internship and became a professional scuba diver when I finally was certified as a Divemaster.
I now enjoy watching my daughter starting her underwater adventures.
In 1993 I learnt underwater photography whilst diving in Gozo. Quite a few years later I obtained a Nikonos V underwater camera. Unfortunately Nikon stopped production of the camera in 2001. I finally moved onto digital photography using a housing for a digital slr camera.
I grew up watching The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau and Cousteau's Odyssey series with the iconic Jacques Cousteau in his red hat on the Calypso. In 1990 I qualified as a PADI Open Water diver.
