PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer #347435

Steve started his underwater adventure in 1975 in Bangkok, Thailand. As a young teenager, his fascination with the sea had him diving every possible weekend in the beautiful coastal shore of Pattaya. As dependents of parents stationed abroad with the U.S Government, both Steve and his brother dove throughout Southeast Asia, to include places like Malaysia, Philippines, and Thailand. Needless to say, they were spoiled with the gin-clear water and the great coral life of the Orient.

The brother’s desire was to introduce the great wonder of underwater life to as many people as they can influence. “You haven’t seen it all, until you’ve seen life underwater,” is Steve’s motto.

Upon his brother’s passing, Steve decided to take diving to a new adventure by earning his Master Scuba Diver Trainer certification. Steve currently works a full time job as a Defensive Tactic/Physical Training Instructor, but teaching scuba is his weekend passion with The Scuba Shack.
