Welcome to my new website –
I finally decided that I wanted to create a website, after all the years of being involved in the IT world this will be a first for me. With this site I plan on sharing the world of diving with anyone that wants to join me.
I think in the short term I will be posting diving related posts and pictures. As we move forward I may want to include dive travel, at least mine, and maybe a podcast.
I will also be talking about the gear that I use. This is my opinion of the gear and not any scientific testing.
I am an instructor for a well-known major certification organization. I become a certified OW diver in 1998 at Jamestown RI, USA. I have been teaching Open Water SCUBA since 2012, and am a PADI Staff IDC Instructor.
I am also certified by PADI as a Specialty Instructor, qualified to teach Boat diver, Deep diving, Drift diver, Dry Suit diving, Enriched Air diving, Night diving, Peak Performance Buoyancy, Self Reliant diving and Wreck diving.
I am certified by Divers Alert Network as an Instructor, teaching courses in Emergency Oxygen for Scuba Diving Injuries, Basic Life Support: CPR and First Aid, First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries, On-Site Neurological Assessment for Divers, and Diving Emergency Management Provider Program.
For fun I am now certified as an advanced Recreational Rebreather diver of Ambient Pressure Diving’s Evolution. Outside of teaching I like diving wrecks (accidental and purposefully) and the reefs of St. Croix.
There will probably be lots of pictures of Turtles.
Remember that although diving is fun and for the most part a fairly safe activity if you attempt to do something without proper traing 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 trianing, find yourself a certified instructor and learn the proper way.
Also on some of the pages there may be foul language.
