    I'm originally from the Galapagos Islands. At the moment, I work as a freelance diving instructor and as an executive in a tour operator company.

    Growing up in the ocean I was always wondered by being underwater. I remember I used to "dive" on my imagination under my desk at school. Fifteen years later I realized that I was pretending to use a CCR then.

    I learned OC SCUBA when I was 12. A friend of mine put a harness on me and pushed me into the water from my grandfather's boat. I did my open water diver course in 2000 and became a Pro in 2004.
    At the moment I'm a PADI / DSAT Mater Instructor and Trimix Instructor. I dive CCR (evo) and love sidemount configuration.

    I have a few personal challenges at the moment. I want to pioneer into technical diving in Ecuador and the Galapagos as a complementary business for recreational diving. This is my blog http://tecrec-ecuador.blogspot.com.

    My main goal in diving is to make it a way of life for more people around the world. Only if we do this, people will start knowing the ocean and loving it deep enough to take care of what's left of it.

    I think the realistic way to do it is trough innovative business models.
