    Male
    Certification Agencies:
    PADI, PSA, TDI, IANTD
    Dive History:
    While I like to say "I've been everywhere man...", I am far from it.
    Have about 350 dives under my belt. My trek started in local quarries and quickly progressed to the warmer waters of Key Largo. Think I've done about half of my dives in the Keys. I've been lucky enough to have been diving in Australia and a couple of trips to Hawaii. There for a while, my annual dive trips were to the 1000 Island area in Canada - which is awesome wreck diving BTW. In between these places, I've managed some interesting one offs such as coastal Carolina and Bonne Terre Mine. Oh and I can't forget Lake Mead either.
    Certification History:
    PADI - Master Diver + Cavern
    TDI/IANDT - Deco + Adv. Nitrox
    PSAI - Deep Air Level IV

    Next certifications - Intro to Cave and Trimix
    # of Logged Dives:
    200 - 499
    Dive Classification:
    Experienced Diver
    Years Certified:
    Ten Or More Years
    Dive Equipment:
    Migrated to back mount wing and plate about 7 years ago. Won't go back to general recreational gear again I don't think. Looking into side mount at some point as well.
    Rebreather Experience:
    Former frequent scuba diver now almost completely dry behind the ears. Looking to get back into the swing of things and dive again.
