- My Summary
I was intrigued by the adventures of Mike Nelson of Sea Hunt (old tv series) and learned to dive while still in High School in 1973. 44 years later, I'm still diving. I definitely prefer diving in warmer waters (Florida, Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, etc), but I live in Washington State and do dive in the cold waters here.
I am interested in learning more about reef conservation and restoration. And would love to participate in some AWARE Debris clean up events.
In 2014, I joined a group of divers as a Mars Ambassador to assist in a Coral Reef Rehabiliation Project on Palau Badi Island in Indonesia. Our team of 12 installed 1079 'spiders' to promote the regrowth of the dynamited reef around that island.
2017 - I currently hold Advanced Open Water, Deep Diver, and Wreck Diver certifications. Dry Suit training is up next.
