    PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer - Scuba Diving since 1998

    I'm originally from Richmond, VA but have moved around quite a bit. I've also lived in NJ, Bolivia, TN and WI. I love to travel and been fortunate enough to visit every State, except Alaska. I gained the ability to speak fluent Spanish living in Bolivia but I've also been lucky enough to visit other countries as well. Those include Argentina, Bermuda, Canada, Jamaica, Mexico and the islands of St. Kitts and Nevis. I really love teaching and diving scuba.
