DiveWild - Monterey, CA USA 

Looking for Dive Buddies About Me:  I am 46 years of age, married with two kids from a previous marriage ~ my son who is 22 and my daughter who is 20. I own and operate a wild animal facility in Monterey, CA as I have for the past 26 years. It is home to over 150 lion, tigers, bears, elephants, birds of prey, reptiles, etc... I´ve been diving since 1982. As a professional animal exotic trainer in the film and television industry, my work has taken me all over the world allowing me to experience diving in Africa, Mexico, Hawaii and all over the United States. I now own and operate a wild animal facility in Montrey, CA where my wife and I invite guests to participate in our Ocean Safari adventure. This has become an avenue for me to combine a true passion with an occupation. My most recent excursion away from Monterey was a night diving experience with Manta Rays on Kona,Hawaii. An incredible experience! Today, I am a Naui Master Diver, working towards my Dive Master certification.
Gender
Male
Favorite Dive Gear
My Galileo Sol Dive Computer and my Mercury 14´ inflatable dive boat. They´ve made a day of diving allot more fun.
Favorite Dive Locations
As much as I would love to say Monterey, I LOVE warm, clear, exotic waters. So far my favorite the drift diving in Cozumel Mexico with Kona Hawaii running a close second.
Activities
Pertaining to diving: a little of everything depending on my buddy. Photography, hunting, a little tech or even just sight seeing.
Interests
Other than diving, I spend a great deal of time with my horses (western) and with my cars ~ I´m an avid Corvette collector/enthusiast.
Favorite Music
Again, I´m across the board. There are times when I´m totally into country and times when I need to veg and listen to classical. Hec, I´ve even been in rap moods (not often though...)
Favorite TV Shows
Boston Legal!!!
Favorite Movies
Kelly´s Heros, Crimson Tide, and Little Mermaid (I know, but whatever.)
Favorite Books
Water for Elephants and The Devils Teeth (a MUST read for all divers!!!)
Favorite Quotes
You only live once ~ so live this one!
