He started his studies at the Technical University of Crete in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering but he never finished due to the fact that his heart belonged with the sea. With over 6000 dives in Greece and around the world – Dias has worked as a sailing/motor boat Skipper, Divemaster, Instructor and manager in respectable dive centers throughout Greece.
