    Dive History:
    Bonaire is a favorite.
    Certification History:
    The most beautiful and profound emotion we can experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the sower of all true science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead. To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive forms - this knowledge, this feeling, is at the center of true religion... Albert Einstein

    Rebreather Experience:
    Loved Sea Hunt in the late 50s; Cousteau specials and National Geographic shows on PBS continued to pique my interest. YMCA OW certified in 2002; Ed Skaggs provided PADI AOW training and was a great resource-ditched 1/2 of my lead.
    When diving I feel very close to God, and often am overwhelmed by underwater splendor.

    I dive to find him."
