    PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor - Scuba Diving since 2018

    Born and raised in Southern Indiana it was pretty typical to travel to Florida when going on vacations. I remember the very first time visiting Florida because it was  that very trip that I fell in love with the ocean.  At the age of 14 I was headed to Panama City Beach with my friends to watch their brother play baseball and after my first view of the beautiful sea, I knew I was hooked. 

     

    Since that day I wanted to become a scuba diver, but thought it was simply a dream of mine I would only live in another life.  So after crossing off a college degree from my bucket list and even moving to North Dakota during the oil boom, I realized I had the opportunity of a lifetime.  To make my dream my reality.   So in May of 2018 I did just that, I drove down to Key Largo and began my diving adventure with Rainbow Reef.  I have loved every minute of diving, learning, and meeting everyone here and I can't wait to help others make their dreams a reality too!

     

    There's nothing wrong with enjoying looking at the surface of the ocean itself, except that when you finally see what goes on underwater,you realize that you've been missing the whole point of the ocean. Staying on the surface all the time is like going to the circus and staring at the outside of the tent. Dave Barry
