About Me

I was inspired to start diving when I observed divers below me while snorkeling in the Dominican Republic. They happened to be taking photographs of each other near a shallow reef. What a cool thing to be able to do, I thought.

    So, during the next years escape to a warm climate vacation, my wife and I took the PADI Discover Scuba course. Our first dives were on the LTC wreck near Paradise Island in the Bahamas. I was hooked.

    We went back to the Bahamas the next year, 2006. This time we were on Grand Bahama and I had made sure that the resort we went to offered scuba lessons. The first stop for me after checking in was the scuba shop at the resort to sign up for class. My wife was not as enthusiastic, but the instructor managed to convince her to at least sit in on my class. She could sign up later if she wanted to. Well good thing the next day was rainy. Since she had nothing better to do she joined the class and we both got certified as PADI Scuba Divers.

    That afternoon found us, with my housed Canon point and shoot in hand, on a shallow reef. I was in heaven.

    The rest is history. I have gone on to more advanced training and am working towards becoming an instructor. My interest in photography, a hobby I have played with off and on over the years, has been reinvigorated and is now a big part of my retirement plans.
