My Summary

I grew up living in Jupiter, FL.  In 2003 I joined the military and shortly thereafter was stationed in the Mid-West.  This is where I learned how to dive. Upon my seperation from the military, I came back down to Florida and was working for a very short time on a dive boat.  While working on the boat, I did have a chance to complete my Nitrox Certification.  Due to medical reasons, I had to leave working on the dive boat.  I did enjoy my time aboard the boat and learned a lot.


I am currently enrolled in an Advanced Open Water course with a focus on Shark Conservation.  One of the other specialties I want to become certified in is Search and Recovery. 


I also volunteer with the Civil Air Patrol.  My primary focus is Emergency Services.  CAP performs about 90% of inland search and rescues as tasked by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center.
