Bio: I grew up and started diving here in Los Angeles when I was a youngster and here I am, running a dive shop for 20yrs. But after diving throughout the years I began to notice a change in the local eco-system. Less fish at our local reefs, no more Otters, no more Abalone, less Giant Sea Bass and an unbalanced Kelp-Forests due to warming waters. Fueled by my love of diving and concern for our reefs I started volunteering in the Kelp restoration projects and teaching ecological courses. Now Eco Dive Center is our new home, the first solar powered dive shop with the best eco-minded dive team. I've taught diving all over the world and I have never seen such a fun group of energetic, strict on safety and dedicated teammates. Here at Eco Dive you'll see a difference, we teach because we love it, we sell the same gear we dive with. We talk like we walk.

Bio: At the age of 10 I attended CIMI - Catalina Marine Institute and I instantly knew that I wanted to dedicate my life to all things ocean. Started out free diving and eventually moved to scuba. It has been downhill from there. I have dove all over the world my favorites being Western Australia (Wobbegong Sharks!) and the Kelp Forests here in California. I specialize in fish identification and marine life. I am particularly interested in sharks. I love diving with them and educating people on how to protect them.

Josh Josh,

Rank: PADI Certified Assistant Instructor,
Actively Teaches: Refreshers allowed
Bio: I was actually born in a pond since growing up in rural Thousand Oaks didn't have any nearby medical centers. I was very attracted to that same pond growing up and used to name my goldfish buddies based on the tooth markings on their bodies that started appearing shortly after I was introduced to sushi. Fast forward a few years, I took a trip to Hawaii, absolutely fell in love with snorkeling & would make that a top priority on any vacation since. I'm fascinated with fish & was limited to snorkeling with them in amazing spots like Hawaii, Aruba, Catalina, etc. Then came my intro to scuba diving in just 2012. Addicted. Hooked. Never turning back. This will be in my life forever. My goal is to share my amazing experiences with people whether it be from my GoPro videos or by personally teaching them to dive. Dive or Die!

Student Certification Count: 1700+
Bio: He grew up with a great love for the Ocean and his family always lived close to the coast. Naturally, he took up surfing, diving and free diving in his youth. George's obsession for scuba began at University with a class taken to fulfill his elective credits. From the first moment he jumped into the water with the ability to detach himself from the world above the surface of the water and freely explore the depths below, he was hooked. A career in scuba became a dream and though he have a great deal of experience with commercial diving and technical diving, George found his favorite role to be in teaching others and sharing this amazing world with them. He taught for several years at AquaWorld in Mexico, and now has been teaching off our California waters for 3 years now.

Bio: Growing up on a tiny island in Southeast Asia, it is ironic that I was an aquaphobe till my early twenties. Refusing to give in to my irrational fear of the water, I decided the best course of action was to do something extreme. During summer break in 1999, I traveled to a tiny island in Malaysia, and got certified as an Open Water Diver. Since then, it has been an amazing odyssey which has brought me diving all over the world. Now I want to share my love of the underwater realm with students eager to jump into the water and explore. Few things can compare to the satisfaction of seeing a wide eyed student brimming from ear to ear after their first encounter with a playful sealion. I love all types of diving; wreck diving in Florida and in San Diego, Drift diving down the Colorado and in Cancun, muck diving in Redondo Beach and Lembeh Straits, wall diving in Roatan and in Sipadan, and of course reef diving in Catalina and in the Great Barrier Reef. But one of my favorite types of diving is swimming thru the kelp forests off our California coast. It is like a magical hike through an enchanted Redwood forest with the sun beams shining through between the trees…only underwater!
My Dive Gear: My Gear: Only the best gear for me! ScubaPro Uwatec dive computer with wireless transmitter, Scubapro Seahawk BCD, Scubapro S600 MK25 Regulator, Scubapro Nova Scotia semi dry wetsuit and Scubapro Everdry Neoprene drysuit.

Bio: I "discovered" SCUBA in 2007 and have been hooked since. I had such an awesome instructor (thanks Beth!), fun classmates, and loved the SoCal environment that I went straight to Advanced. I followed that with a few specialties (Drift, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Wreck, Enriched Air, etc., etc., etc.) and then completed my Rescue, DM, and Instructor courses. In addition to the stellar kelp forests and sea life here in SoCal I really enjoy destination diving! I love to travel and have been diving in Australia, Fiji, Thailand, Costa Rica, Hawaii, Grand Cayman, and the Sea of Cortez.

I have dove all over the world since but nothing quite beats the beautiful California kelp forest.

Bio: I began diving in 1989 in the dark cold waters of Whittier, Alaska and while that slowed me down temporarily, a move to California reignited my love for diving. I love to travel and one of my goals is to explore the world both above and below the water although California still ranks as my favorite dive location. The kelp forests are amazing and I can think of no better way to pass an hour than laying on the sand watching a sea-lion chase fish. My favorite dive though so far was off Aliwal Shoals, S.Africa diving the Produce wreck and listening to humpback whales singing underwater. The effect was as if the wreck was haunted. While there I took a specialty course in Shark diving that has lead me to appreciate sharks even more and try to spread the word on fact and fiction regarding them. I am very excited to be working in diving again and can't wait to share the experience with others! My Gear: Waterproof wetsuit, ScubaPro and Atomic
My Dive Gear: Atomic and Waterproof… I'll help you choose the right stuff don't worry.

Bio: Before I popped into this world, I inherited a full dose of my Grandfathers genes. Fishing, Hiking, Scuba Diving, Free Diving, Exploring, Adventure, Adventure, Adventure… I was born in San Diego and grew up going to La Jolla cove every week. I worked through the ranks from hole digger to Body Boarder to Surfer and then BOOM, moved to Pennsylvania (ie. landlocked) with my family. That put a dent in my seamanship development for a few years. However, after graduating college years later, I moved to Los Angeles to polish my surfing game (ie. Get a job) and pursue all sorts of wild post graduation dreams. I’m happy to say, that the scuba diving dream came true. It has turned into one of the most fascinating, adventurous and challenging passions in my life. Now, as a padi scuba instructor I have the opportunity to share this passion with friends and soon to be friends from all over the world. Its an amazing experience from start to finish. Come dive with us!

Bio: Having grown up around the ocean, saltwater is in my blood. Whether it was catching a wave, snorkeling, skin diving, or just hanging out at the beach, the ocean is always where I wanted to be. I first discovered Scuba while traveling in Thailand in 1996 and fell in love. But eventually, ”grown-up life” caught up with me and I found myself in an office in front of a computer screen, and then playing stay-home dad for my 2 kids. Getting to the beach got harder and harder. I finally found my way back to the ocean and into diving in March 2013 and haven’t looked back. You could say I dove in head-first: after open water certification I couldn’t wait to take the next class. When the time came to think about going back to work, I didn’t want to go back to the office so I decided to get outside and do something I truly enjoy. Naturally I chose to teach scuba and am now working towards my instructor certification. I have had a great experience learning to dive with Eco Dive Center and I hope to pass that experience on to you.

Bio: My life begins in the water. My parents threw me in the water and I was swimming before I could walk. Growing up in Southern California, I've been in, on or around the water and the great outdoors my entire life. Boating, Mountaineering, Rock Climbing, Mountain Biking, Surfing and bugging my parents to let me get certified for SCUBA since I watched my first Sea Hunt episode. When I was thirteen, I became a certified diver and haven't stopped diving since. Actually, I can't remember the last time any of my dive gear was dry. I love our oceans and the amazing diverse aquatic life that dwells off the pacific coast. My love for teaching goes beyond just introducing my students to the amazing underwater world, but passing on my love for diving and the need for conservation of our oceans so future generations can enjoy them too.

Bio: Grew up in Taiwan, never really had an opportunity to learn how to swim, and was afraid of the water till I came over to the states. With some inspiration from my anesthesia mentor at UCLA I was braved the waters and did some discovery scuba at Australia's great barrier reef during one my conferences. Ever since, I was hooked forever to continue exploring the underwater world. I attempted to finish my open water here at California, but was turned down due to my poor ability to swim. I trained hard and got my certification! The more I dive, the more hunger I have for underwater exploration, and gain a passion to spread my addiction to all my friends! I also love photography land or under water, and would love to help you further your enthusiasm for photography as well!

Bio: Growing up, I loved looking at those DK fish books before bed, especially the ones about sharks. Unfortunately, I was a frail kid with asthma and allergies and so on; I never thought I'd actually get to scuba dive. After graduating from UCLA I was in Malaysia on the beach when I thought, "Screw it dude. Life isn't complete until I go into that ocean and scuba dive it." So I did and I didn't die, and I've been diving my ass off ever since. I also write the newsletter (putting that English major to work) so you know that what you read isn't copy pasted from some dark place on the internet. My favorite Disney movie is the Little Mermaid (duh). My favorite beer is Sculpin because it has a cool fish on it. Also it tastes good.

Bio: My first scuba experience was actually at Space Camp (yes, I'm a bit of a nerd) - simulating weightlessness in a tank in Huntsville, Alabama. Years later, I was traveling in Central America and remembering how much I'd enjoyed scuba and loved the water, decided to get certified. I fell in love with scuba, immediately moving on to my Advanced course. In early 2014 I relocated from Washington DC to sunny Los Angeles and jumped at the chance to dive every weekend, and ultimately decided to share my love of scuba and the ocean with others. I've been to Belize, Honduras, Mexico, Grand Cayman, and the Philippines; traveling and diving are two of my favorite things and I love to combine them whenever possible.

Bio: Growing up in California I've always had a love for the ocean and the life within. During a trip to Belize, while snorkeling, I noticed the divers below and thought "I want to be there . . . where the fish are!!". And of course who doesn't want to be the Little Mermaid? So I decided to take the leap and get certified and that decision has forever changed my way of life. Diving is a passion and something I want to pass onto others. And while diving in the tropics is fun and warm, it doesn't compare to the crisp blue waters off the Channel Islands in the winter months.
