    Certification Agencies:
    An alphabet soup of letters and occasional common sense.
    Dive History:
    I do most of my local diving in Boston although I usually try to make 3-5 trips a year to Cozumel. In 2009/2013 I got greedy and visited Cozumel 6 times in one year; I think that's my record. I crew/captain on a dive boat and teach OW classes locally in Cape Ann/Boston most weekends in the summer.

    All over New England (mostly Boston, Cape Ann, Rhode Island, Vermont), Cozumel, Cancun/Isla Mujeres, Playa Del Carmen/Tulum, Belize, Fort Lauderdale, Florida Keys, North Florida, St Lucia, Bahamas, North Carolina, St Lawrence River Seaway (Brockville Ontario & Alexandria Bay, NY), Great Lakes (Lake Huron, Lake Superior, Lake Erie), Scapa Flow (Scotland), Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, and New Zealand.

    Also, I am not DIR nor do I claim to be. I am brand agnostic when it comes to certification agencies. Wing, BCD, horse collar or plastic garbage bag..whatever floats your fancy.
