PADI Open Water Instructor
Shawn received his open water certification and began diving December 2010 in Anchorage, Alaska. A few weeks following his certification he deployed to Okinawa, Japan where he spend his first 3 months of diving and 40+ dives. Japan is where he first became interested in Technical diving, shortly there after he returned to Alaska and began looking into GUE (Global Underwater Explorers.) In August 2011 he received a rec pass for GUE Fundamentals of Better Diving and his Rec 3 certification.
Having a thirst he couldn’t quench he entered the Divemaster program and continued to expand his diving knowledge so he could enter the realm of technical diving. In August 2012 the dream became a reality and passed his GUE Technical Diver level 1 as well as completing his Divemaster certification.
In November 2013 Shawn completed the Instructor Development Course and attained his Open Water Scuba Instructor. He is now currently instructing PADI Diving in Phoenix, AZ. Shawn has dove around the world and in climates ranging from the desert to ice and has logged over 500+ dives
