Mike's passion for scuba diving and the skills he's gained have enabled him to travel extensively; adding even more to his diving experience. From recreational scuba diving to performing high-risk operations on oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico. Mike has already packed a lot of diverse experience into his career. Mike attended the Halls Diving Center in the Florida Keys, where he became an instructor when he was 20 years old. He then went to school in Santa Barbara to complete his Marine Technician and Diving Medic Technician training. During this time, he worked on oil rigs off the coast of California and in the Louisiana Gulf, where he did underwater construction. Mike is now dedicating his life to Left Coast Scuba, where he can teach students his passion for diving. Mike is all about the ensuring the safety of his students and loves to see the excitement after someone's first dive because it brings back the memories of the time when he first started diving.
