2013 and the new version of my website about-scuba-diving.com, which I originally created in 2001, got online.
I am a patient diver since 1987. I started learning scuba diving with CMAS, discoverd PADI and got my PADI Instructor certification in January 1991. Later I worked as certified Staff Instructor at the PADI European College in Cannes, France.
I have been working as instructor or dive operation manager in different countries like France, Jordan, Maldives, Sri Lanka, Australia and the Philippines.
I discovered the underwater world of the Philippines in 1992 and spend nearly ten years “kicking sand on the beach”. After Atlantis Dive Resort in Sabang, Puerto Galera, where I did my last job as dive center manager, and a few 1,000 dives, I quit as Master Instructor and decide to go back into IT business.
Early 1999 I came up with the idea to create an online magazine about scuba diving in the Philippines and published the first “Scuba Philippines” newsletter, send regular and only by e-mail, in October ’99.
Due to the my work I stopped the newsletter but started in February 2001 the web site www.about-scuba-diving.com.
But again, after one year and back in good old Germany, a long deco-stopp. In 2010 I revamp this website. New design, another CMS and many ideas.
My goals are to promote the Scuba Diver Community on the Internet and to make www.about-scuba-diving.com a rich site in scuba diving resources, content and in services that are useful and relevant to the needs of the scuba diver community – especially for my second home – the Phillipines!
