I was born in Mexico City and I have always loved the water. In high school I was on the swim team and I was in the water before and after school. Once, my high school swim team organized a swim from Playa del Carmen to Cozumel. It took me 12 hours, but I did it !!!
Soon after finishing my college degree in Communication and Media, I decided to move to the beautiful Mexican Caribe. In Playa del Carmen, I started working as an Activities Director in an all-inclusive resort. One day at work, I met Natalie and, thanks to her, I discovered the underwater wonders I am now so addicted to. I love diving so much that I decided to become a PADI Professional, first as a Dive Master and then, a couple of years later, I earned my PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor certification. I became an instructor to help people learn to dive safely. I love diving and I want to show everyone how amazing it can be. I spend as much time as possible underwater, leading dives or introducing people to diving. It is very rare to see me dry. I never refuse a chance to go diving. And if you ask me, I will always answer that I'd rather go diving with you!!!
