PADI master Instructor #23170

Growing up in NJ I always had a love for the water. But it was when I moved to Illinois and found time on mu hands that I saw an ad for a SCUBA class in Normal IL. The time was right so I thought what the heck! Although taken aback by a bunch of, shall we say, suspicious looking characters...

I fell in love with diving - found the MDS family - two years later when I became an instructor for MDS. I found a love for teaching others and seeing the wonderment they too find in the underwater world.
