About You, "The Professional"...
How I was introduced to the professional diving industry:
I was introduced to diving at the young age of 12. Where I was living on the East Coast of Canada. Our family would go to Jamaica every year on March break. In 2010 I won a trip to Fiji and it inspired be to start Scuba Diver Life.
What I like best about my job:
I love that I inspire people through the content we share. It's also great to run contest and engage people. It's such a great feeling when someone writes you a thank you letter and tells you how much they love your company.
Words of wisdom for those starting their career in the diving industry:
Starting a career in the dive industry takes passion and commitment. We all know that. I chose this field and stuck with it, I made it work for me.. I still am making it work for me.
Best way to keep a competitive edge:
I think the best way to keep a competitive edge is to be unique and offer things others don't. Personal touch is another great thing people enjoy. I am always out there making relationships with divers around the world.
Biggest change I have seen in the professional diving industry since I started:
The biggest change is the adaptation to the online world. The scuba industry is heading that way. With a good portion of diving apps coming out each month. We as an industry are slowly moving to the digital space. I am quite excited for ScubaEarth to come out and help really progress that transition for the industry.
