Lee Clifford Commercial Dive Technician

About Me

I spent the first half of my life working within IT as a Solutions Architect, however in 2022 I started down a career change into Commercial Diving. I had a love for being underwater as a recreational dive instructor for PADI and BSAC, but wanted to go pro. I am hard working, enthusiastic and have excellent problem solving skills. I can help in a number of different roles on a dive site and my main drive is to be useful and an active, valued member of the team.
