I came to Playa del Carmen in December 2004 as a PADI MSDT. Originally I learnt diving in the lakes of Bavaria and all training until instructor were followed while I was still working in my “normal” office job. I have a degree in business administration, a qualification to train trainees on the job and another degree as a foreign language assistant. The desire to change and get away and also to exercise myself made me leave Germany in 2001.
Since my arrival here in Playa del Carmen I have acquired profound knowledge about the area while ocean, cavern and cave diving. I have a personal policy of continuing my education and furthering my skills regularly so you can expect to have soon courses offered that are not yet included in my list.
