    Rebreather Experience:
    I discovered diving in December 2008 when I desperately needed to add some excitement to my life. It has surpassed my expectations and I am hooked!

    I live in Chicago but like getting away whenever I can. I do look forward to a lot of freshwater diving here in the area and would love to explore the wrecks of the Great Lakes.

    I try to follow DIR/GUE praxis and would like to meet like-minded divers for training or just diving, but I admit that I have some serious work ahead of me to get ready for any actual technical diving courses.
