Favorite Dive Gear
Whatever keeps me under the water enjoying the view.
Favorite Dive Locations
The Sea of Cortez, Belize and the Bahamas. Can´t wait to do more!
Activities
...Diving, DUH! That and soccer, football, hockey, baseball, paintball and pretty much every other sport out there.
Interests
Is it really necessary to answer this again? Once again diving is my passion but I´m a big fan of the World Cup. It´s so bad that I´m getting in trouble checking the scores at work. I figure it comes only once every four years so I should be able to get away with it, right? Right. Congrats to Spain for their win.
Favorite Music
Wow, how do I answer this? I have favorites in every genre of music. Throw my iPod on shuffle and you´ll get everything from Blink-182 to Andrea Bocelli, Elton John to Metallica. Billy Joel, Randy Travis, Run DMC, Greenday, Tupac, Seal, Marcy Playground, and stuff I´m sure no one else has heard of. It´s safe to say that I like a lot of different music.
Favorite TV Shows
Any retro cartoon from the ´80s and ´90s. Ah, those were the days.
Favorite Movies
Top Gun, Enemy of the State, Shooter, The Prestige, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket, Ocean´s 11. Of course the Disney movies are classic. (wow am I kid or what?) Plenty of others, just no room the list them.
Favorite Books
The horror classics like Frankenstein and Dracula are always good. Shogun was awesome. And a good friend of mine wrote a book called Underestimate Me and it´s pretty funny.
Favorite Quotes
"I looked into the sea with the same sense of trespass that I have felt on every dive. A modest canyon opened below, full of dark green weeds, black sea urchins and small flower like white algae. Fingerlings browsed the scene. The sand sloped down into a clear, blue infinity. The sun struck so brightly I had to squint. My arms hanging at my sides, I kicked the fins languidly and traveled down, gaining speed, watching the beach reeling past. I stopped kicking and the momentum carried me on a fabulous glide.”- Jacques Cousteau on his first scuba dive in 1943

That quote is almost poetic. I never tire of reading it. Thanks for sharing!

That was the first thing I read when I got my open water instruction manual and it´s been my favorite quote ever since. Thanks for the comment!
