“Since my early years in Fort Lauderdale I’ve always wanted to dive and spent time in the ocean swimming and snorkeling. We started out in the muddy lakes of Missouri and northern Arkansas, but since then I have enthusiastically pursued all types of diving and underwater recreation. I enjoy diving in perfect, gin-clear waters of a Florida spring or on a reef in the Caribbean as much as I do in poor visibility of a winter shore dive in the Gulf or exploring a silted wreck.”
