In 2009 Mike started his certification through CSI at the field station in Andros, Bahamas. He quickly advanced to his instructor certification. Mike has certified hundreds of students in Ohio and at numerous Caribbean resorts. It is rare to see Mike out of the water through the summer months. Mike has uncanny energy about him that is contagious. Mike is also a wilderness EMT and teaches an exciting rescue course. When Mike isn’t teaching diving, he works as a personal trainer so if you’re looking to “tone up” he’s your guy!
