Favorite Dive Locations
Cape Cod, Florida, Cayman Islands, Cozumel, Cabo, La Paz, The Bahamas, Belize, Bonaire, The Bay Islands of Honduras, Hawaii, Grand Cayman, Fiji, Palau, Malaysia and the underground/underwater mine/cavern diving operation in Missouri (of all places). Where´s my favorite tropical place to dive? "As long as the my friends are around, the waters warm, the critters & photo opportunities are plenty, that´s my favoite dive site!"
Activities
I´ve been an avid diver since 1981 & an instructor since Nov. 1982 and have received my 30 year Instructor pin (2013), with NAUI and my 25 year PADI Teaching pin too (2012). With over 4250 dives under my weight belt, I´ve certified over 2655 students of all levels along with teaching Wreck, Boat, Deep, Nitrox, DPV, Night, Drift, Navigation, EFR, DAN O2, Drysuit, PPB, Multi Level, Nitrox & more! Teaching, travel, movies, bike riding and hanging out with friends.
Interests
Lot´s of them... But along with diving, I´m a Dive Travel Agent/Specialist. I read a lot using my "Kindle", love motorcycles but don´t currently own one.
Favorite Music
Classical, Oldies but Moldies, modern stuff and I know it´s a little late in life... Country Western! LOL
Favorite TV Shows
NCIS, the Star Trek Series, Blue Bloods, Army Wives, Madman Secretary, Nashville, Persons of Interest, BOARDWALK EMPIRE, Agents of Shield, Revenge & anything dive related.
Favorite Movies
Most everything. But I can´t stand the axe murder and thrashers movies. What a waste of time & money.
Favorite Books
Novels by W.E.B Griffith, Tom Clancy, Dale Brown, Clive Cussler, Peter Coyle,Ken Follet, John Grisham, Robert Ludlum, Dan Brown´s "The DaVinci Code" & "Angels & Demons", "The Last Days" (about the on-going conflict in the Middle East), Robin Cook, the life of "John Adams" & many, many more authors. I do like techno & medical thrillers and I´m a WWII history buff. Own a "Kindle" now... ´Good by´ hard and soft cover books!
Favorite Quotes
"In for a penny, in for a pound" (of lead weight). =-)
