    Rebreather Experience:
    Diving Rebreathers Since:
    1996
    YMCA Open Water while in college. Light diving until I blew a knee while skiing out of bounds at Alta with a friend in 1989. Visited Turks and Caicos in 1990 (club med) and then sought advanced training through the 90's. Enjoyed considerable junking off NC coast and in the weekds off Catalina. Pursued caving, completed full cave and specialties with Dale and Carl (dec). Learned mix from Sheck (dec). Explored in N. Florida and Quintana Roo (cudos to Villas de Rosa). Continued diving through the 90's. Tapered off at the turn of the century as work became more demanding and my personal life became more a priority. Remarried, and with two young boys, my risk tolerance is much different.
