Head Diver

Nickname/s
Tony / Poké Tone 

What energises you at work?
The chance to see Wild Critters under the sea, Dolphins, Whales, Sharks! Maybe even the occasional Croc in clear water.

What’s the biggest misconception people have about your job?
That we are the bad guys from Finding Nemo, which is the furthest thing from the truth! We don’t live at 42 Wallaby Way Sydney. And of course the care we take in exercising sustainable collection techniques.

What would we most likely find you doing on the weekend?
Sitting back with a bottle of wine and gaming on Playstation or listening to some sexy vinyl soundtracks!

If you were a crayon, what colour would you be?
Strangest question in existence lol. The colour purple, the greatest colour no question!

Favourite coral and why?
It’s varied over the years, but the OG is Micromussa! Collecting some of the best pieces in Aus in my early career, with the most amazing variety of colourations, and found in an array of environments from 1 to 15m deep, a stunning, tough, awesome coral!

What do you love about the job?
Spend most of my life out on the Great Barrier Reef, enough said! And being such a unique, niche line of work, there’s really only a handful of people around the world who can do the job.

If you could have any one superpower, which would you choose?
As a former Merman, I’d love to be able to jump back in the water, without any equipment and dive for as long and as deep as I’d wish, see what secrets the ocean holds!
