Instructor and Sales
Hailing from the small corn town of Brentwood, California, Ross spent his entire childhood either making music or spending as much time as possible in nature. After graduating from CSU Long Beach with a music education degree, he decided to drop everything to spend the next two years long distance hiking throughout the west coast, and work and travel through Asia and Australia.
After taking his first breaths underwater in Thailand, Ross was addicted to the world below the surface and spent as much time as he possibly could in or near the ocean, whether it’s the warm, crystal clear reefs of Indonesia or the freezing cold kelp forests of the Monterey Peninsula. Upon doing his first Manta Night Dive in 2017, he has wanted nothing more than to return to Kona to share his passion for the underwater world with others.
