About Me and My Career Goals

  Tyler served 22 years in the Marine Corps before retiring. When he and his family moved to Florida Tyler started down his PADI Pro path in Jacksonville Florida then found the Dive station and continued threw the PADI ranks until he reached course Director with Florida Diving Institute and the Dive station. Prior to Keith Mattson passing he took Tyler under his wing and showed him the ropes, being a great role model for Tyler to be come the outstanding Course Director. After Keiths passing Tyler took up the mantel of part owner and lead Course Director as well as operations manager to ensure Kieths legacy would live on.
