The Rebooting of DiverSync

Curious About Me?

I have been in the diving industry for over 30 years.  I am a PADI Course Director, PADI Technical Diver Instructor Trainer, PADI Prism 2 Rebreather instructor, and a Hollis Prism 2 Rebreather Factory Certified Technician.  I am also a Dad and my wife and kids dive with me regularly.  I own and run many diving businesses including Divers Incorporated in Ann Arbor, Michigan. 

I started this podcast in 2010 after being interviewed on another scuba podcast.  Since then I have talked about my life as a scuba instructor and dive shop owner on a regular basis.  In 2020 I took a break from podcasting and in 2023 brought it back as you see it today!

A good insight into life from the perspective of a scuba professional! Though perhaps more relevant if you dive in the areas Rich Synowiec teaches and works in, there's a lot here to learn. The last few episodes of 2020 are a real insight into the challenges of running a dive business in one of the strangest years on record. Worth a listen if you're into scuba!


Great content from someone that really knows scuba diving! Rich dives a lot and works in the industry so he always has some great insight. Worthy of listening too if you have interest in scuba diving.
