About Steve Lewis
Steve 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 adventure tourism, and brand management. In 2002 he retired from the corporate world and became a dive bum full-time, and is currently a Dive Industry and Adventure Tourism consultant for clients in the private and public sectors.
Steve runs a blog concerned with dive safety, is a regular contributor of articles and essays for several online publications, and has written and co-authored several diving textbooks including the best-selling Staying Alive, and Six Skills and Other Discussions.
As a speaker, educator, and writer he is best known for promoting safe diving practices to technical divers using both open and closed-circuit kit, in caves, on wrecks and in open water environments. Among other awards, he is a recipient of the NSS-CDS Sheck Exley International Safety Award for 1000 logged cave dives, and was recently elected as a member of the college of fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society.
