My life is a three-ringed big-top! In one ring my long-time career as an English-language teaching professional. In a second ring: my little school--for SCUBA diving. The third ring: my private life with my scattered family and friends.I switch "hats" throughout the day... Often I'm an English language teaching professional; off and on I'm a writer; some days I'm a scuba instructor; and I'm always self-employed, independent.
- Dive Equipment:
- Mostly dive with typical rec gear: Aqualung Zuma Pro BCD, Aqualung Legend LX Supreme regs, Mares Quattro paddle fins, ScubaPro SeaWing fins, DiveRite cave fins, a variety of different thicknesses of wetsuits (.5 Radiator Titanium skin; 3mm custom fullsuit; 5 mm Pinnacle merino fullsuit; 7 mm Henderson Hyperstretch fullsuit). For tech diving, OMS backplate and wing rig; Apeks regs. For sidemount, DiveRite Nomad LT Cave wing, Apeks sidemount regs. Camera setup: Olympus XZ1 and two Inon D-2000 strobes.
