Rob from Mesa AZ | Instructor

Raised minutes from Jones beach on Long Island- New York. It wasn´t until I moved to the desert of Arizona that I bacame a diver.

Although I tried scuba a couple of times in my early twenties

I really started diving at 44 years of age and was OW certified March of 2007 .

I dive locally at Lake Pleasant year round but prefer trips to tropical locations.

I have dived Lakes Mohave, Canyon, Saguaro and Pleasant in Arizona. Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Penasco, Puerto Vallarta, Huatulco, San Carlos and Cancun Mexico. The islands of Bora Bora in Tahiti and Aruba, Catalina California and also Fort Lauderdale Florida.

As a diver I believe in continued education.

I´m always continuing my SCUBA education by taking specialties.

Specialties I’ve taken not in the list include Project AWARE Diver

Certified VIP Tank Inspector

AUP Open Circuit Technician

I completed my PADI Instructor’s Exam November 20th 2011.

MSDT as of October 11th 2014.

I’m looking forward to passing the passion of diving to others.

Hey Rob - thanks for the add. Like you, I grew up in Michigan where you can’t go anywhere without running into a lake, but didn’t start diving until I moved to Denver.

Aside from a reservoir or two and several rivers and very cold lakes nearby - I like to jump in the car and go down to the Blue Hole in NM for a weekend.

Let me know if you are ever in the neighborhood.
