Ever since I was a young man, I wanted to explore our oceans and what's in them. I have fallen in love with scuba diving and with the friendships I have made while diving. I began diving in the summer of 2013 with the help of Ocean Safari Scuba. In my short time diving, I have been able to travel and scuba dive in beautiful and exotic places, for example, Hawaii, Bahamas, Mexico and other destinations. I have been inside a shark cage staring at an 18 foot Great White shark named Bruce at Guadalupe Island, Mexico. In 2017, I saw hundreds of Hammerhead sharks swim above my head at the Galapagos Islands. I'm typically a shy person, however, diving has helped me come out of my comfort zone to meet new people and share diving adventures. In the future, I would like to earn my Instructor Certification and help others discover the beautiful world in our oceans.

In early February of 2019, I was able to dive The Great Barrier Reef. I'm not a photographer or have a great camera. I only use a GoPro with color corrective lenses. However, I took this picture and I feel it’s the best underwater picture I have ever taken.

One of my goals for 2018 was to become Certified as a NAUI Scuba Instructor. Fortunately, I was able to accomplish my goal in late December 2018. I’m very grateful for the opportunity to train and learn from the entire Ocean Safari Staff. Each staff member has contributed immensely to my progress and growth in scuba diving. My favorite thing about diving is no matter what your current diving certification is there's a lot more to learn and improve. As we close 2018, I look forward to the New Year with excitement and anticipation to grow as a diver and Instructor.
