Is there anything more exciting & fun then scuba diving?
After all the years of being involved in the computer world and as a Scuba Diving Instructor, I have finally decided that I wanted to create a website. With this site I plan on sharing the world of diving with anyone that wants to join me, although don’t expect frequent posts. If there is a subject or a critter you’d like to discuss just leave a comment and I’ll reply.
Who am I?
I am an Scuba instructor using the world’s leading scuba diver training organization’s system, PADI. Although I had my first scuba experience around 1990 I didn’t become a certified OW diver until May 1998 at Jamestown RI, USA. Subsequently, I became a Scuba Diving Instructor and have been teaching Open Water SCUBA since 2012, and am a PADI Staff IDC Instructor. Click on the links below to see what I can teach:
What will be on the site:
I will be posting on various subjects related to diving; for example, travel (at least mine), environmental issues, training and gear (that i personally use) This is my opinion of the gear, usually through use and not any scientific testing. For fish & critter identification I use 3 books by P. Humann/N. Deloach, primarily:
Reef Fish Identification 4th edition
Reef Creature Identification 3rd edition
Reef Coral Identification 2nd edition
For fun, I am now certified as an TEC40CCR Rebreather diver of Ambient Pressure Diving’s Evolution. Outside of teaching, I like diving wrecks (accidental and purposefully sunk), the reefs of St Croix and learning how to be a better underwater photographer.
Where else to find me:
Most of the time my videos will be posted to YouTube and crossposted to Facebook. Still pictures will go to Twitter, Instagram and Reddit.
I am open to ideas to write about. If you have a topic you’d like me to cover, feel free to let me know in the comments and I’ll either write about it or get back to you. If you are interested in writing articles, I will be happy to review them and if they meet my objectives I’ll post them and give you credit, of course. Please email me if you are interested.

Remember, that although diving is fun and for the most part a fairly safe activity, if you attempt to do something without proper training you could probably DIE, maybe not the first time, but it will catch up with you. Nothing I say here can be construed as proper training, find yourself a certified instructor and learn the proper way.
