I first started scuba diving through a resort scuba program when I was 17 years old on a family vacation trip to the Cayman Islands. I later became a certified diver in Seattle Washington and spent many years diving up and down the Pacific Northwest. In 2011 I returned to Minnesota where I founded the online social Meetup group, Twin Cities Scuba Club, which is still active today. In 2014 I moved to England for business and ended up working with colleagues who enjoyed technical diving World War I & II shipwrecks around the UK and Europe. So, over the next 2 years of my EXPAT assignment in the UK, I earned a couple of technical diver certifications, while also getting the opportunity to dive some the UK's classic scuba diving locations. In 2016, I relocated back to Minnesota and convinced some of my local buddies to become technical divers so we could dive the USS Oriskany in Florida. This year I will finish my Trimix certification before heading out to Truk Lagoon in October to check off one of my bucket list dive trips.
