Steve Lewis

steveBio2Steve Lewis has been an active technical diver, instructor and expedition leader since the early 1990s when diving was an antidote to a career in marketing and brand management. In 2002 he retired from the corporate world and became a dive bum full-time. Currently, in addition to actively teaching, he works as a dive-industry consultant for clients in the public and private sectors.

His other professional credits include serving on the Training Advisory Panel for TDI, SDI, ERDI, working as managing editor for Diving Adventure Magazine, and as a contributing editor for Underwater Journal. He is also a regular contributor of articles and essays for several onLine publications. Steve was elected to the Explorers Club in 2005, and is a recipient of the Sheck Exley International Safety Award from the National Speleological Society – Cave Diving Section. He has authored and co-authored several diving textbooks including the best-selling Six Skills and Other Discussions and recently published Staying Alive: Risk Management for Divers

Although he has a home near the eastern shore of Lake Huron in Ontario, Canada, he travels extensively and delivers diver and instructor training programs across North America and the Caribbean, Europe and Asia.

As a speaker, educator, and blogger, he is best known for promoting safe diving practices to recreational divers who plan to use both open and closed-circuit kit, in caves, on wrecks and in open water environments.
