What is your certification and cert. level?

My highest certification is PADI DM with DSD leader authorization. I don't professionally use the DM, it was earned to support Boy Scout diving. I don't carry DM insurance so I will NOT act as a divemaster on these meetups. NASDS OW - 1971 SSI Senior (no longer exists) - 1973 UC 100 hour cert - 1978 NAUI Rescue - 1980 PADI Rescue - 2011 PADI DM - 2011

I swear to read the Release form in the files section

Read on 11/11/2011. Consider it signed this date.

how long have you been diving?

I started at age 14 with NASDS OW. I've been diving on/off depending on my circumstances and buddies. I did a lot of diving while going to UCSD and UCSB and earned the UC 100 hour certification. My diving dropped off when we had kids. Now that they are older (20 and 18) I've jumped back into the ocean with full force. I have experience in California diving from San Diego to North Coast, most of my dives have been in Monterey. A few dives in CA mountain lakes, Hawaii, and CanCun/Cozumel.

How are you in cold water diving?

Diving dry. Cold water, beach diving is no issue. I'd love to do warm and/or boat diving but have 2 sons in college so....


I've been certified since 1971, and very active since 3/11 (~100 dives/year). I have earned Divemaster, but don't use it professionally. I'm eager to dive, and don't mind novices. I dive dry, love to dabble in DIY, and am into photography.

What Cheryl M. is saying about this Meetup Group

This was a well organized, but flexibly run outing. Great group to meet new divers or find a buddy.
