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

I'll be Advanced OW in a week. I've been diving for 24 years though living in Iowa I only have about 100 dives. A significant portion of them are 70+ feet. Now that I live in South Florida I expect to be diving almost every weekend.

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

No I haven't but I love to learn new things or just haul line to the bottom for you. I don't care as long as I am involved.

How much time would you expect to devote to volunteering?

How much time do you need? If it involves diving, as much as you want. I plan on diving anyway so if I can be of some use while underwater, even better!

How can we make a difference in our oceans?

Honestly, people don't care and we can't make them care. The only way to make a difference is to band together those of us who do understand the impact to do what we can to combat the ignorant people who flick their cigarette buts into the ocean or chuck a soda can over the side of their fishing boat.

What special skills can you bring to the team?

I am a highly decorated doer of things. I'm a computer programmer, database admin, diver and have been on the internet longer than Info.cern.ch.

Introduction

I've been diving almost 25 years and would be excited to help with any projects I could.
