French, Spanish, Mexican… Diving from the age of 10 years old.
After having taken my first steps into the underground world in Spain, and later in France, I decided in 2004 to settle down in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. This region considered a cave diver’s paradise, with over 1000 kilometers of flooded tunnels, a varied geomorphology, and a unique beauty.
Even today, the exploration possibilities are unlimited!
At the age of 18, I decided to take the step towards teaching recreational diving, first through the French Federation of Underwater Study and Sport (FFESSM, member of CMAS), and later as an instructor of the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI).
My activities in diving quickly veered in two directions:
— Training: turning quickly to the most advanced courses, training future instructors both as IDC Staff, and PADI Master Instructor and as IANTD Instructor Trainer for Cave, Technical, Sidemount and Sport diving
–Technical and Cave Diving: pushing the limits of my personal evolution, in new environments to discover and explore.
After several hundred technical dives, both cave and deep, I finally took the step towards certification agencies dedicated to this field: NACD (National Association for Cave Diving), IANTD (International Association of Nitrox and Technical Diving), TDI (Technical Diving International), the technical section of PADI, allowing me to fuse my passions while teaching current and safe techniques necessary to partake in the following activities.
