PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer
PADI Professional Team Member
After a year spent travelling around Australia, Andy (originally from Stoke-On Trent in England), arrived on Koh Tao in October 2013 and completed his Open Water and Advanced Open Water.
Having caught the diving bug, he made a speedy return to the island 4 months later to do his Divemaster and IDC. After completing the IDC, he enrolled on the MSDT program to gain valuable experience and knowledge working alongside some of the senior instructors here at Crystal.
Andy had only planned to stay on the island until he had finished his MSDT, but decided to extend his stay and complete the working internship offered to new qualified Instructors and Divemasters.
After his Instructor internship, Andy was offered a permanent position on the DM Team and has now been teaching and working here for over a year.
When Andy isn’t working you can usually find him, either relaxing with the rest of the team or students with a cold Leo beer, or in the local sports bar watching his beloved Stoke City.
