Master Scuba Diver Trainer #197417
I stopped by the shop one day to talk with someone about learning to dive and immediately signed up to take the Open Water class. That was in March of 2004 and by October of 2005; I had completed both Master Diver and Dive Master Certifications. My wife claims I am obsessed with diving and I guess she is right. I think I would dive in a mud puddle if I thought there might be something to see. I still remember how excited I got the very first time I went diving as a “Certified Diver” and I have never stopped learning to be a better diver.
While I love to travel and dive in warm Caribbean waters to see the reefs and abundant sea life, my adrenaline really gets going when a shipwreck looms up out of the murky depths, just waiting to be explored. The coasts of Virginia and North Carolina are great places to find shipwrecks and the close proximity makes them an easy weekend excursion. My other passion lies with cave diving and if you have a couple of days to listen, just ask me why! The scenery inside underwater caves is breathtaking. I also dive with the Lake Monticello Water Rescue team as a water rescue diver which is a rewarding and exciting way to help people in and around the water.
