Please tell us more about your diving experience and certification level including number of dives made and maximum depth.

PADI certified in 2009 and Nitrox certified in 2010, I've logged over 250 dives to a max depth of 130'. I enjoy lobster and spear fishing. I have been diving in MI, FL and the BVI.

Have you been involved with reef restoration or underwater archaeology before?

Yes with my local dive shop.

How much time would you expect to devote to volunteering?

16 - 20+ hours a month and possibly more. I could also help with projects while at my shop.

How can we make a difference in our oceans?

Awareness, education and exposure. I think that utilizing the social media and networking tools available today, we can education the public and stimulate interest. The more we understand about our environment, the better we can protect it for future generations.

What special skills can you bring to the team?

Aside from my love for diving, I am a Mechanical Engineer. I own an engineering and fabrication business with CNC machining, welding and metal fabrication capabilities for carbon and stainless steel as well as aluminum. I also have a fair amount of experience with electronics, electrical and hydraulic systems. I am a very 'hands on' engineer and enjoy problem solving. I also have 20+ years of product design experience utilizing 3D CAD and motion analysis. I have spent most of my life on and around the water with a considerable amount of that at the helm of sailboats and motor yachts up though 48'. I am very much at home on the water and can be of assistance where needed.

Introduction

Hi, I'm Jeff. I think being part of a group that meshes their love for diving with projects that educate the public and benefit the environment would be the ultimate fun time.
