Dyl, big D, Warpaint Guy, Ironlung

What energises you at work?
Friendly competition to try do better than the others and to try and find the best and nicest pieces

What’s the biggest misconception people have about your job?
That it’s the best office in the world. 90% of the time it’s windy, dirty water, too cold or too hot, hard to sleep, but we do it for the 10%.

What would we most likely find you doing on the weekend?
Usually working, but if I’m lcuky to have a weekend off I’ll be down the beach, or creeking having a few beers with some mates unless it’s less than 10 knots then I’ll be out at the reef fishing and spearing.

Favourite coral and why?
Tubastraea because I also live under a rock theoretically

What do you love about the job?
The serenity of not being around the hustle and chaos of land life and the 10/10 sunsets and wildlife
