    Born and raised in Texas. Got interested in diving watching Sea Hunt re-runs after school while I was in elementary school. By junior high I'd discovered "Silent World" by Jacques Cousteau and started reading everything I could on diving. After high school I joined the US Navy spending almost 10 years working as a photographer and photo-journalist. I earned my scuba certification while stationed in Florida. I left the Navy, went to college, then worked at Cape Canaveral for Photographic Services. Photo Lab manager after that. Returned to the Navy in late 2001 and retired in 2012. I worked mostly overseas between 2004 and 2014. I retired in 2014 and spent a few years as a "professional dive bum" :wink: I spent almost 2 years in the Philippines during that period and have made over 400 dives in that country. I moved to Guam in 2018 where I have a part-time business as a scuba instructor and dive guide. When I'm not diving or teaching, I'm attending school full time at the University of Guam where I'm working on a B.S. in Biology.
