    Dive History:
    Completed PADI OW certs in Panama City Beach. Dove the Gulf of Mexico on 2 boat dives and did 2 freshwater spring dives at Morrison springs.
    Completed AOW, on deep dive I went to 102 ffw, did not experience noticeable narcosis.
    Gained experience in cold(er) water than have previously experienced. Water temp at 102 ffw at Dive Alabama was 55deg F. I learned the value of a good hood, gloves, and boots on this dive.

    Spearfishing in bay springs lake in northeast Mississippi was uneventful, however fun regardless.

    Several blackwater dives with Monroe county Search and Rescue.

    Rebreather Experience:
    Hey y'all! I am a broke college guy majoring in Forestry at Mississippi State University who loves the outdoors and wishes to preserve it for future generations. A good friend of mine talked me into trying SCUBA my junior year of college where I discovered that compressed air is very addicting. Since then, I have completed my OW, and AOW certifications and am happily on the path to becoming the best diver that I can. I have several amazing mentors and buddies who push me to become better than ever before. I own all my own gear and recently have taken the backplate, wing, and harness plunge. I now see what all the fuss is about. Cold deep water diving is nowhere as bad as I originally thought it would be and actually consider it quite rewarding. Any questions or comments please feel free to PM me or post on my wall. I have recently joined the Monroe County Search and Rescue team as a diver and land based rescue technician on ropes, rural search, and missing persons.
