I was one of the first AmbassiDivers Padi created and I think it was just par of the pilot test, I'm pretty active on social media. They asked me to become an Ambassi Diver and that kind of set the standard for the last few years.I am also a passionate photographer/videographer so the San Diego Undersea Film Exhibitions has been going on for 20 something years now. When I heard the board was looking for new members I applied and I handle their social media and do different things with them.

They are the world industry of diving and because of the people we all are passionate about underwater. So there's a lot that deals with Ocean Conservation like Shark awareness so a lot of the classes that they do is dedicated to care for the ocean. Everything is evolving a lot in making divers that can be Ocean Ambassadors as well because every person that gets Scuba certified has a responsibility in taking care of the Ocean.

I remember seeing my first fish underwater I could see so much color and detail and I couldn't believe it could survive underwater. I couldn't get enough and continued to improve my snorkeling and that just led to becoming a diver. It really changed my life. I am from Mexico and I moved to San Diego California and it's all because of Scuba! I was probably nine years old at that time, I borrowed a scuba mask from my dad and I snorkel for hours. By the time I was 16 I was very sure I wanted to be some kind of a scuba diver. I set my goal to become a Dive master and went from there.

I can visit locations that have amazing biodiversity, You can try and solve problems as a Padi Diver and teaching so I can see people fears turn into joy and excitement. I love that my office is underwater and I can teach something underwater. But I like to teach rescue classes and people will be very confident. I wake up early and have my gear ready and I drive to the dive site and go and do a fun dive. I come out of the ocean and do a dive report where I tell people how the conditions are. I work 9 - 6 and help instructors with students, classes and options for students to get certified. On weekends I wake up early and teach a class and moviing them through different programs. We practice with our cameras or GoPro's and make sure we have the right set ups with lights. From there we plan our dives and I give them examples of pictures I took recently. My favorite I've photographed is the Octopus.
