Originally from Somerset, I was first introduced to diving in September 2015. After completing my Open Water in Vobster Quay, it was not long before I ventured to Asia on a quest for adventure and where my obsession for diving began. Since then I have been blessed to see a variety of wonders below the surface, as well as volunteering for Operation Wallacea. My plan is to continue travelling to find unique places so I can share these experiences, introduce people and encourage them to appreciate the world we inhabit1 Articles
