From a very young age I used to free dive to the “deep” and hold on to any rock I could find, for as long as i could, amazed by the beauty of the big blue. I needed to be down there!

With time this calling found my other big passion, history; and the two together led me to my first scuba certification some 20 years back.

For me diving is freedom! Diving allows me to enter a time capsule, explore and tell the stories behind! Their stories. The stories of the battles fought and the souls lost!

After completing my BA degree in Accounting and Finance, I worked in various positions within the financial sector both in the UK and Greece, ranging from Trading to Project management, for almost 20 years.

During all this time of my corporate career, the sea has always been the place where I went back to, to recharge my batteries and focus.

Finally, the calling got stronger and became a dream, and that dream is Athens Divers club!

Sea u…..Down under


What do you do when you feel sad??? I go to the sea… what do you do when you feel happy??? I go to the sea… it took me years to realize this and as soon as I did, I became a Padi instructor. More than two decades now, after thousands of dives and certified divers across the globe, there is no looking back, not for a single day. My life became happy, balanced, peaceful and exiting in the same time. Like when we are underwater…..!!!


Scuba diving came to me naturally. I start when I was 12, and I never stop since. Floating and breathing underwater is for me the best therapy in the world. It’s underwater that I really discover myself. I had the chance to grew up in Greece, and the opportunity to be close to the sea. Even if I travel around the world, dived in some of the most spectacular places; Mediterranean is for me the place to be. It’s where everything starts… The underwater world is unreal, with a lot of good surprise, and just ask to be discovered even more. Scuba Diving is more than a sport, an activity, or a passion. For us, Scuba Diving is a way of life.
