Biography

Raising the standards of excellence in diving, Joseph represents the 'consummate professional' at all levels of dive instruction. His motto: " Be responsible for every dive in all ways...always; Be aware to fully enjoy the wonders of underwater adventure; And, Be safe to make each dive fun and memorable.

Joseph is a lifelong scuba diver, surfer, and boat captain. Joseph has lived his life under, in, and on the water. He is described best as a 'true waterman': He is passionate about every aspect of his marine activity.

After his first pool dive over 20 years ago, he immediately decided he was going to become a scuba instructor. He became a PADI scuba instructor and DAN Instructor shortly thereafter. His number one goal is to provide his students with the necessary tools and knowledge that will allow them to eventually match or even exceed his level of diving mastery in a safe, challenging, and incredibly fun environment.

Whether it's your first dive in a 10-foot pool or a decompression dive, he is just as excited to jump in the water to instruct and enhance his students dive skills.

While Joseph teaches, dives, surfs, and captains all over the world, he calls the kelp forests of California his home. Living a life that's integral with the ocean has taught him the three very important things: Safety First; Experience = Fun; And...Respect the Sea... and your beaches!
