Originally from the UK, Simon worked in several countries as an instructor before joining Dive Wellington.

In his spare time he likes to travel and explore New Zealand with his wife Anika

He is a qualified service technician, boat skipper and PADI MSDT, currently working to become a PADI Staff Instructor. He has always enjoyed the teaching side of his  job, so being involved with Dive Wellingtons busy training environment makes coming to work not really work at all. And even though he has dived in some amazing places, he says having a marine reserve on the doorstep is pretty hard to beat!
