- My Summary
I'm a 21 year old Mechanical Engineering major at the University of Florida and diving is my passion. I was born in Austria but now my main home town is Boca Raton so I dive off the coast there alot. In North Florida I occasionally go for a dive in the springs, but that's a bit too cold for my liking. Every year I join Dixie Divers for their annual pier cleanup of Deerfied Beach where we collect all the waste left behind by the fishermen. While I'm out on recreational dives I always keep a lookout for what's not supposed to be there and would swim against the strongest current just to pick it up. Eventually, I'd like to get an Master's degree in Ocean Engineering, so I can be closer to the ocean when I work.
