Dan has been diving since the summer of 2020. He was introduced first hand to diving on a missions trip in Bonaire, and had a desire to Scuba dive ever since. He received his PADI Open Water Certification in July of 2020, his PADI Advanced Operator in September of 2020 and never looked back, achieving his PADI Divemaster Certification in August of 2022. Dan enjoys seeing the looks of joy and confidence when new divers achieve their certifications. He also enjoys the looks of discover and wonder as he teaches PADI Discover Scuba Dives to those who are just dipping their toe in the water. He has a passion for conservation and the beauty of the underwater world. Dan helps around the shop, assists PADI Instructors in certification training, and serves as the liaison for our trip coordination. Dan is a US Army Veteran, and a veteran of the First Gulf War 1990-91. He lives with wife, Robin in Billings and has a son Josiah (PADI AOW Certified!) living in Alaska and a son and daughter-in-law, Nate & Catarina serving in the US Air Force in South Carolina.
