    Dive History:
    Still being new to the sport, I have made several trips to the Florida keys, but spend most of my days diving in our local lake. Now the springs is nice and all, but it doesn't compare to the 0 vis and cold temps of the local lake. Started out by getting my Open Water certification and quickly advanced and got my Advance and Rescue certifications. Then got a few specialties under my belt before moving into Public Safety Diver. Just recently obtained my Master Scuba Diver certification.

    Rebreather Experience:
    So I was sitting at the Fire Department one day watching my fellow members suit up to go diving, and I had a strong urge to go with them. Just one problem, I wasn't certified. Luckily, one of those members owned a dive shop and was an Instructor. One year later, I was certified in Open Water, Advanced, Rescue, Public Safety Diver, and now I am Master Scuba Diver. Thanks to my loving parents this opportunity would not have been presented to me if it wasn't for them. Being on a small income, they paid for my initial certification as a Christmas gift. What followed was a life long passion that I strive to learn more and more about.
