Born and raised in Kiev, Ukraine. Since childhood, he’s been fond of various sports. In 2000 he began diving and received the first diving certificate. Then, he became a PADI Instructor in 2006, and a TDI in 2007. In the beginning, diving was just a hobby for Sergiy, but soon after it quickly turned into a job and an exhilerating way of life. For 10 years, he also lived in a small Bedouin village called Dahab (Egypt, the Red Sea). In 2013 he became TDI course director. Sergiy is very happy doing what he enjoys, and that includes teaching recreational and technical diving from beginner to instructor level. He’s also fond of underwater photography and video shooting.
