    Rebreather Experience:
    I started diving when I was 22 hoping to use SCUBA as a way to do research in my graduate studies. I took to the sport very quickly and found myself constantly wanting to learn to dive in different environments which prompted me to continue my diving education. Having reached my goals as a recreational diver I have found myself wanting more out of diving which has prompted me to pursue a divemaster cert. and several technical diving certs. I still use diving as a way to conduct research, but I also get enjoyment out of diving as a hobby.
