Hi everyone,

I've been a member for a few months now, so I figured it was about time I introduced myself:

I'm from NYC and I go to school at Indiana University, where I'm a research assistant for the Office of Underwater Science. I went diving for the first time when I was 12, and now I'll be a divemaster once all the paperwork pushes its way through. I've always loved photography (and sometimes get to take it underwater!), and I'm discovering a passion for underwater videography.

I'm heading out to a semester at James Cook Uni. in QLD, Australia in 9 days (and counting), so if you've got any favorite dive sites around there, send them my way!

Take at look at IU's research in the Dominican Republic:

And if you want, have a look at my flickr page:

Hi Josh,

Welcome, you've come to the right place to learn. I'm sure our Australian friends can help you out. If you don't get any help in a couple of days you might try reposting again and put your request in the title of the post. Not everyone reads every post. Good luck in OZ!

Welcome welcome ...

... you'll have a blast up in QLD .. great part of the world.
Had a look at your flickr page, you take some great photos .. I see you just got a new D300 ... sure you will have a great time down under with that !


PS .. exactly what Steve said about making another post re your QLD questions .. there are loads of people with loads of knowledge of the area, if you put a post in Dive Destinations & Travel with a nice specific title you will probably get more info than you needed.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys,

I'll have a look at the travel section and put up a thread there.
