Frank’s love affair with the ocean began at an early age. His father taught him to swim in the ocean when he was 4 years old. He began body surfing at age 5. It was no surprise that he became involved with scuba diving at an early age. Frank has more than 40 years diving experience. He is a NAUI and SDI Scuba Instructor and has trained hundreds of students. He has worked with both dive shops and the Cal State Long Beach Scuba Program. Frank is a diver for the American Association of Underwater Scientists, an instructor who introduces disabled veterans to diving, and a volunteer diver at the Aquarium of the Pacific (located in Long Beach, California). Along the way Frank has also earned an Honorable Discharge from the United States Navy and a PhD in Computer Science from the University of California, Irvine. His extensive teaching and diving experience in Southern California waters including Catalina Island, makes him an extraordinary instructor and dive guide for both Tandem (Introductory) Divers and Certified Divers who want a knowledgeable and highly skilled guide.
