I started back in 1977 back when I was in high school. After many years of inactivity (diving related), my oldest Son David became interested in scuba as part of Boy Scouts. We organized BSA Venture Crew 9 in 2000 with the sole purpose of scuba diving. We were certified under PADI as an Open Water divers in August of 2001.
As a crew, we earned our Advanced open water in July 2002 and our Rescue Diver soon after. I enjoyed working with youth through the BSA Crew activities. We took several trips to BSA Sea Base in Florida, spent a week on a 65′ liveaboard boat in the Bahamas, and spent 10 days diving in Mexico, including the Cenotes. This was a great experience!! During this time, I earned my PADI Dive Master certification February of ’06.
With all of my own kids off to college, I decided to further my Scuba credentials and earned my Instructor’s certification in October 2012. Since that time, I’ve had the pleasure of introducing over a hundred students to the great sport of scuba diving. I look forward to being able to do the same for you.
