    I am a Texas transplant by way of Missouri and love being here. I've lived here over 15 years now and I have enjoyed the snowless winters and great diving around Texas.

    I am a PADI MSDT and started diving in 2008. I got into diving while being a counselor/role model in a youth camp conducted by Paladin Youth Services. The OW certification class was part of the week long camp and it was a great experience working with a great group of teenagers.

    I love teaching and scuba diving, so becoming an instructor seemed like a good fit. I’ll be teaching in Austin again this season, but making time for fun dives this year also. Come on out to Windy Point and lets do some diving!

    Stay safe, stay wet.
