I love teaching kids to dive! Two of my children dive and have helped me with my instruction. It's been a great family activity and a blast seeing them grow up in the sport.

Steve is one of our Scuba Ranger instructors! He also teaches night and weekend Open Water courses.

Since 1984, Steve has been hitting the water! Starting out at NC State as an undergraduate, he got certified and never looked back! In 2005, he became not only a scuba instructor through Gypsy Divers but a scuba ranger instructor, specializing in training our younger divers!

His motto, “Work hard to play hard”, influences how he spends his time outside the office and dive shop. He enjoys skiing, cycling, attending NC State Football and Hurricanes games, and venturing down to Florida for regular fishing trips.
