Who I Am
Paul started East Coast Divers in his father’s garage in the early 1970’s. By 1980, Paul had expanded to 3 stores across Massachusetts and one of the largest dive operations in the North East. Over the years Paul consolidated his store into the flagship facility in Brookline where it still is today. Even after selling the dive center in 2012 he still teaches for East Coast Divers.
Paul has been teaching diving full time for over 40 years. He loves to show new people diving especially those that might be a bit anxious and children. Paul had the pleasure of teaching his own daughters to dive and has loved the excitement of teaching kids to dive ever since.
Paul is also one of the primary instructors of the local chapter of Operation Blue Pride. Blue Pride is an organization that East Coast Divers works with to teach veterans to dive. We have been working with Blue Pride since 2014 and Paul has been an integral piece of that team.
