Super idea! If it's wet, I'm in.

What is it about the Brooklyn Underwater Artisans that attracts you to this group?

Would love to help others actualize their underwater imaginings.

In what way would you like to contribute to the Brooklyn Underwater Artisans?

NAUI Instructor, long time member of NY Aquarium Volunteer Dive Team, have worked with Urban Divers Estuary Conservancy on Gowanus Canal benthic core sampling, oyster farming, and other research dives. Love getting into local waters.

Are there any special talents that you have that you would like to share with the group?

Woodworker, diver, writer. Also drinker, debater, pontificator, social activist, and all around cheerful fellow, depending on who you ask.

What avra cohen is saying about this Meetup Group

A fantastic idea: to harness and fuse the creative power of artists with the energy of divers and marine enthusiasts.

    Hi Avra, thanks for your message. I am looking forward to getting more involved with the group - my schedule is unfortunately (and unusually) tight till end of December - lots of things - but I definitely hope I can do more in the new year!

    Thanks so much, Avra, for not only attending yesterday's premiere of the Civil War tour, but for your very kind review. I also appreciate your generous cross-listing of my upcoming Slavery tour on your own site. Hope to see you again soon!
