- Dive History:
I started diving in 2003, and immediately fell in love with scuba and the ocean. Within a few years, amassed a few hundred dives. In 2008, I met my dive mentor and best friend, John Chatterton. Since then, I started technical diving, rebreather diving, hardhat diving, etc. Diving is not just my hobby, it's a huge part of my life. I've worked with and dived with John Chatterton constantly since 2008, and who knows what new wrecks we'll discover... In 2012, I decided it was time to share some of my diving experience with others, and became a scuba instructor.
I've dived in: South Florida from Jupiter to Dry Tortugas. Belize, Roatan, Cozumel, San Diego, Catalina, St Thomas, Dominican Republic, Turks and Caicos Islands, Maine, North Carolina, Milwaukee (Lake Michigan), and New Jersey.
I shoot video (for television even), take photos with a DSLR (I have been published in magazines and books). I even find time to dive with my sweetie scubameg. :)
