I was found by the good team at Oyster Diving when I was washed up by the current on Brighton Beach. They took me in, gave me a warm home. When they learned how good I was at freediving (I can hold my breath for 2 hours) they offered me a trial dive. I was a bit of a natural so I went on to become a qualified diver.
I now work for Oyster and travel the world making sure our guests are properly looked after. Follow my blog posts for some great trips!
