I’ve been diving since 1982 immediately upon graduating from Purdue University with a degree in Engineering.
I had no goal when I started to become an instructor. But I asked what was next in a thirst for diving. I became open water certified in Texas. I went diving every chance I got. I now have over 1800+ dives. I love diving Cozumel the best, with the most recent trip being my 65th visit- the best diving in the Caribbean Sea! Other Places are Belize, Roatan Honduras, Hawaii, British Virgin Islands, Bonaire, Puget Sound in Washington State, Cabo San Lucas, Gulf Coast of Texas, Coastal North Carolina, Cooper River South Carolina, Florida Springs, Windward side of Cozumel Mexico,Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac. I have made a several dives in the Living Seas at Disney’s Epcot Center in Florida.
My Biggest Thrill is watching the elation on new students’ faces after they realize that they can do this SCUBA thing!
