Extremely professional, thorough, knowledgeable. I had the honor to assist Robert during a PADI Freediver Instructor Training Course. He has a way of teaching that makes you feel calm yet excited to learn more. The experience was very rewarding; I left the course feeling confident to continue on with my personal PADI journey. I feel privileged to call him a mentor.

I‘ve always admired Rob’s expertise and professionalism. His teaching is well-structured and precise, conveying mastery while emphasizing safety.  He helped me achieve my goal of teaching freediving for marine science, and creating the first PADI Scientific Freediving specialty course.

Robert helped me transition from freediving student to instructor. His combination of professionalism, knowledge, and accessibility prepared me to teach this amazing sport. His stellar reputation has earned me additional credibility and opportunities amongst my peers, for which I am grateful daily. I cannot recommend Robert highly enough.
