Background

I started my dive professional career with Rasdhoo Atoll Divers at Kuramathi Maldives in 2004. Since that I dived all around the Maldives with all the leading dive cetres within the Maldives. Namely, Ocean-pro Dive Team, Euro-Divers Worldwide and Albatros Top Diving.

Experience

I started diving when I was 23 when I was lucky enough to get my most favorite job ever! Being a Scuba Instructor has been such a rewarding job for me, being able to share the Underwater World with  is one of the most amazing feelings. I was diving every day so it was the natural path for me, for me it’s something to look forward to everyday, each dive can offer you something new and exciting no matter how many times you have been to the same site.

I consider myself to be a very good underwater photographer, and I love sharing that knowledge with others.

Interests

I love traveling and watching games.
