What brings you to scuba diving?

I started diving in 1983 in the Philippines (where I could dive in the South China Sea every weekend). I presently dive offshore NC from Cape Hatteras, Morehead City, and Wilmington. I also dive in the Caribbean presently focused on Belize and Bonaire but my intent is to move to diving Key Largo, BVI, leeward, .

What level of experience do you have (beginner, certified, old salt)?

I was an old salt now I've worked my way back to "brackish" by completing 128 dives since May 2013. I finished gearing up for the NC coast and I started diving off Hatteras this summer. I also go to Ambergris Caye, Belize and to Bonaire. I don't spend much time at FLSP as I am a member of the PDRA if anyone needs a quarry buddy, please let me know. I am also an avid sailor. I would like to crew on boats for the experience so if you have a boat and would like to sail (but need crew) please let me know.


I intitially PADI certified OW in 1983 and AOW in 1985, I refreshed in 2013 after a long hiatus. I am an avid diver and sailor so if you are interested in sailing (and diving) in the Caribbean, let me know.
