If you’ve made it this far then you already know, my name is Robert and I am a PADI certified Divemaster. I am originally from North Carolina which is home to the ‘Graveyard of the Atlantic’ offering some of the world’s most intriguing wreck dives. But nothing compares to the diving here in Key Largo - with a fantastic mix of storied wrecks and vibrant reefs, there truly is something for every type of diver!
My passion is helping divers from around the world discover these amazing dive sites. Whether it’s as a guide, helping you get certified, teaching a refresher course, working as first mate on our beautiful boat, The Pheonix, or simply swapping dive stories at the shop, I look forward to sharing my love for the underwater, dare I say it…’silent’ world with you!
The Benwood – at this wreck, you never know what fish friends you might find!

I blame Shark Week! Seeing the divers swimming with the sharks piqued my interest at a young age, and I was always fascinated with the ocean and all of its marine life. At the wise old age of 11 years old, I convinced my mom (Hi mom!) and one of my childhood friends to get our PADI Open Water Certification. From there it was love at first sight. I worked at a scuba shop in college – Go Wolfpack! – where I did all of my Divemaster training because I love diving in quarries with no visibility.
Silfra Fissure in Iceland – I think it would be awesome to swim between 2 continents.
Silent World Dive Center – I’ve heard through the grapevine they have astonishingly fabulous staff and offer the funnest, most memorable dive trips…
Running the streets of Miami, not in a Sapranos kind of way, but actually physically running. I love getting outside for a good run. You might also find me sailing around Biscayne Bay – another salty sailor here. If you can’t be under the water, then might as well be on it, with the wind at your back!
