Diving Experience

  • Started diving at an early age with my father , who instructed the local fire dept. team, never certified then. First certification was in 1997. Since then I have logged over 3000 dives in all waters. The deep cold and dark of the Northeast USA, to the clear blue of the islands across the world, to the fresh water caves of FL. , Mexico, or the Bahamas Whether it is to teach divers, take pictures, shoot video or tool around on my Gavin, the passion is simply to dive. When asked what is my favorite place to dive I reply, "a place that I have never been." I try to dive as much as possible and still mix in other aspects of my life for a nice balance.

Community Involvement

  • The Northeast is diverse in it's underwater nature, so, along with the help from all of the staff at our Facility, Scuba Shack, we try to get our community diving period. The group organizes dive trips throughout the world for at least 10 trips a year through the shop and all with different dive trip leaders. We have been known to take as little as 2 divers to 35 divers with us on these adventures. As far as the local climate , we have coined a term of sorts, "Drive and Dives", every year we set up as many local Drive and Dives as possible, our instructors and dive masters all take a group to explore the sights that are reachable in a days times frame.
  • Scuba shack and I also work as much as possible with the local dive clubs and their events to help support the local dive industry. The shop donates time of instructors for various demos of gear and or dive techniques. The dive medicine Dr.s. in our area aslo get as much support from Scuba Shack and myself in the way of supportinfg all their educational efforts.
  • Scuba Shack and I try to support efforts in our area for GUE of course. We have held seminars on the agencies methods and dive skills, to help develope more local GUE Divers. We have in the past and plan for the future to help in any of the local exploration projects.
