My first experience in the underwater world was while on Vacation in Hawaii in 2005. I participated in a discover Scuba experience and was hooked. Although it did take me a little over a year after returning from Hawaii, I finally took the next step and got certified; and I loved it just as much off the California coast as I did in Hawaii. That’s when I decided that I wanted to learn as much as I could about the sport, so I began taking as many specialty courses as I could. Now I am very proud to be able to share what I have learned and give other people the opportunity to enjoy the underwater world as much as I do. Some of my favorite dive locations would definitely be around the Northern Channel Islands. Some of my best dives were at Anacapa, Santa Cruz, and who can forget Farnsworth Banks off the back side of Catalina.
