When not teaching, you will find Chris traveling to the far ends of the globe in search of that next diving adventure. When not out of the country, Chris enjoys exploring the local diving from Massachusetts to North Carolina, North Carolina having a special place in his heart. Wreck diving, artifact hunting, and lobstering are his favorites.  More recently Chris has accomplished some deep technical dives to add to his resume.  E-mail or call to chat with Chris anytime.
