Jake first joined AQ as a student in 2016, and in 2020 he became a PADI dive instructor. Towards the end of 2022, he completed his Yachtmaster certification. Jake graduated from Rollins College with a degree in Business Management in December and has been working on a tall ship in Maryland since then. Growing up in New Hampshire, he spent a lot of time snow skiing and water skiing and is excited to teach students how to waterski in addition to diving and sailing. His favorite diving is in the British Virgin Islands, and he can’t wait to share the beauty of the underwater world with fellow divers. He is also very excited to have the opportunity to give new AQ students the same fantastic experience he had as a student for so many summers!
