Sporadic diving until 2012, when I started diving again on my annual returns to Australia; since then I've been a reasonably active holiday diver.
Highlights were a week on Heron Island (QLD) in 2012, and a long weekend on a liveaboard with Mike Ball out of Cairns in 2014.
Since moving to Tokyo in 2018, I've become very active, diving most weekends.
