Most memorable dive moment: It’s so hard to pick one, but perhaps being surrounded by Jenkins stingrays on a dive in the Maldives.

Most embarrassing dive moment: Check your boxes before we leave says the dive guide. I check. No problem. The boat casts off and I realise my boots are still hanging up in the dive centre.

Favourite dive breakfast: same as any day—muesli with Greek yoghurt and honey

After a dive: definitely beer

When not diving: Chris is an occasional cyclist, and has a passion for making computers do what he wants them to do. He also makes excellent marmalade.

You may not know: Chris is the proud owner of a 16 foot tipi.
