Did his first dive at 10 years old and has been doing it ever since. After university he followed his dream, diving his way round the world gaining experience from all over. Diving in the UK, France, Italy, Thailand, Mexico, Indonesia, Australia and Egypt to name a few. Working on diving safari boats and with daily diving centers. James has been a professional diver since 2004 and accumulated over 9000 dives. He has been living and working in Sharm el Shiekh, Egypt since 2008.
Getting fed up of diving centers turning into machines, no longer being about the guests and the diving but all about business and money, he decided to take over Anthias Divers and make a diving center based around the divers and the diving, passing on his passion for the underwater world to clients and new divers.
Now as a PADI Course Director he looks after the Professional level courses for Anthias Divers.
