How long have you been diving?

3 ½ years now.

How many dives do you make in a typical year?

Around 100.

What other hobbies do you have?

Hunting, fishing and being Papa

Where is your favorite place to dive?


What is your most comical dive experience?

New Years Day forgetting my dive boots and having to borrow Dan La Due’s shorty boots that were 3 sizes too small. But it’s whatever it takes to get the dive in.

What is your occupation?


Words of wisdom/tips or tricks for fellow divers?

Relax and have fun!
