Live at home with my wife.
I have taught in Scotland since the late 90’s, I have to work full time at a “proper” job to allow me to be able to work and teach as a Diving Instructor as there are just not the numbers of people here to allow me to be able to work full time as a diving instructor and still support my family.
I do it because I love it, both diving and teach, to impart knowledge and to see your divers out diving independently and loving it gives me a fantastic buzz.
