I was born in 1968 and raised in Marietta Georgia, about 20 minutes north of Atlanta. I was certified to dive in 1985. After graduating from the Southeastern Center of the Arts, I worked in Atlanta as a professional photographer.
I decided to travel for a year, which landed me in Grand Cayman in 1992. One year quickly turned into fifteen. For about 5 years, I worked as a barman by night and spent the day diving, which got me through the "ranks" to instructor status. I eventually became an on-call recompression chamber operator and this experience got me sparked about the diving community. While diving with Off the Wall Divers for a few years, learning the sites, meeting customers, and diving all the available shore dives (and more), I discovered I wanted to work in the industry.
I eventually took over this dive company and made Off the Wall Divers what it is today. I have learned a lot while owning this company and have expanded my diving experience to include the technical side of diving, recently obtaining my trimix supervisor certificate. During this time I have also obtained my US Coast Guard Captains license.

This is a very quick biography... your best bet is to come out on the boat to hear a few stories... there are many!
