SSI Platinum 1000 Freediving Instructor - SSI Pro ID #96012
Left his job as an electronic technician to pursue a career teaching freediving full time. He has drawn on his previous years competing in boxing and brazillian jui jitsu, which have many transferable skills to freediving. Specifically the mental side of freediving is very similar to martial arts. Staying calm in a high stress situation and making very precise and technical decisions whilst dealing with an element of danger. Freediving is a very mental sport and achieving this flow state is paramount to your success. Specialising in teaching relaxation techniques that allow you to unlock new layers of relaxation and the finer details of equalisation.

Once moving to Perth progressed to diving at Rottnest, Ningaloo and holidays to the Gili Islands in Indonesia.
