About The Author

He learned to dive in 1979 and in 1992 it became his career. He has now spent over twenty years travelling the world, diving in all the best places, and gaining many different experiences underwater (not all of them good) which has furnished him with a vast store of anecdotes. He is known as something of an accomplished raconteur in the diving indutry. During his time he has been Technical Editor of the long-established Diver magazine, and has been regularly published in Undercurrent magazine and DYK.
