I currently use an oceanic probe bcd and Delta 4 regulator, Oceanic octo and computer, Henderson 3mm full wet suit, and a 7mm suit for cold water dives and daycor fins. I use a sea life digital camera for photos.
Favorite Dive Locations
I have 24 logged dives in Belize in 2007. This is a great place to dive and one of my favorites. I liked Roaton but was not there long enough to really enjoy it. There is a quarry near me Haigh Quarry, that is nice for cold water local stuff. I also just went to Lake Wazee in WI and that was fun.

Reef awarness, Scuba diving and continuing my dive education. I plan on taking specialty courses in wreck penetration, search and recovery, dpv diving and working toward my master scuba diver cert. I also like Motorcycles and traveling. I am a tattoo artist and I enjoy getting tattooed.
anything really, metal, country, blues.

this was my 50th dive and I got some great pics. I have learned a lot of bouyancy tricks from the dive crew here. they don’t use weight or air in the bcd’s. I didn’t get the picture of the spotted drum, but I did make some great new friends.
great visibility on this dive. lots of great sealife too. we saw 2 turtles, one hawk’sbill and one loggerhead. we also saw a barracuda. beautiful soft corals throughout the reef. This location was called Pillar coral canyon.
this dive was filmed for a this this documentary on the Belize barrier reef. We dove to 87 feet and entered the tunnels, swimming through until we exited at 112 feet. some places we literally crawled along to get through
