TDI Nitrox Instructor#24751
I began diving in the early 1990s. I was drawn by the beauty and adventure and have been at it ever since. I’ve been blessed to have dived in many parts of the world; I’ve seen a lot of great places and made a lot of great friends thanks to diving. From recreational diving to technical diving, it’s been awesome! Now as an instructor I look forward to helping new divers discover the same things that drew me in years ago.
Specialties you like to teach or are good at teaching or like to dive:
Specialties are great because they build your knowledge and skills. They make you a better diver and expand your diving horizons. I enjoy the different types of environments or deeper sites that some of my specialties, such as dry suit, make possible.
Favorite Dive Sites and/or Types of Diving:
This is impossible to answer, there are so many great places to dive – California, North Carolina, Florida, the Carribbean, Galapagos, South Africa, Australia, Costa Rica…..
Fun Fact about about you Outside of Diving:
I’m an adventurer at heart, I like being active. If not diving then there’s a good chance I’m at the track with my motorcycle – Road Atlanta, VIR, Barber, Summit Point, don’t get me started, I could go on and on.
Your Thoughts on Diving:
Everyone has the thing that moves them, that floats their boat; for me it’s diving. I’ve done a lot of it and love introducing new divers to the passion. But I’m still learning too. Diving is as broad and deep as you want to take it. You can stop with a basic certification and enjoy some very nice diving, or you can become a technical diver and explore deeper wrecks or caves, or you can find your sweet spot somewhere in between. There’s something for everybody.
