About You, "The Professional"...
How I was introduced to the professional diving industry:
My work experience and education was in retail merchandising. My first 1o years of work experience was in the clothing industry working for 2 major department store chains. During that time I became a certified diver and fell in love with the sport. I then worked for a Denver dive store for 3 years prior to starting my own business in 1983.
What I like best about my job:
The people I get to work with both as customers and as piers. Also the opportunities I have to dive the world.
Words of wisdom for those starting their career in the diving industry:
Treat it as a business and love what you do.
Best way to keep a competitive edge:
Read, listen and learn as much as you can.
Biggest change I have seen in the professional diving industry since I started:
Customers have more than one way to purchase goods and services, forcing retailers to work harder to keep their customers in house.
