       After 21 years in the Army, Sean retired, knowing it was time to start a new career. When he got a taste of diving in July of 2012 in a North Carolina quarry, he said, “I knew on my first breath that I was hooked.” Deciding to move forward in the diving industry, Sean moved to sunny Florida in 2014, where he has since climbed the ranks and is now the manager of Heroes Dive Center. As the store manager and an SSI Open Water Instructor Trainer, Sean can teach you beginning courses all the way through to your Open Water Instructor course. Being able to spend each day educating people on all aspects of SCUBA is his passion. If he’s not managing the store, he’s out diving and teaching with students. If you’re interested in furthering your diving career, Sean is your guy!
