Ásgeir Jónsson

I was born and raised in Iceland and after years in the cold I decided to travel the world. After discovering the magic of the underwater world in 2008, there was no looking back. For a couple of years I was living in Vietnam working as a PADI Instructor, but I kept on traveling the world extensively - diving wherever possible. I have been developing as a diver ever since and now hold numerous specialities. In 2011 I did the PADI IDC Staff instructor course with DIVE.IS and I am nowhere near finished!
