"Welcome to a beautiful blue world!"

Over 40 years of diving, and I'm still excited to see new places and new things!

About me:

I have been a padi scuba instructor for 25 years and an underwater photographer for nearly 35, still actively teaching and still loving to share the glorious underwater world with others! I live in the florida keys and have been blessed to enjoy the sights here and in many other places around the world.
Easter weekend 2014 I returned from a month long trip to the Philippines and Indonesia. I visited Tubbataha national marine park and Puerta Galera in the Philippines, and I did a trip aboard the Komodo Dancer in Indonesia. June of 2015 I revisited Komodo, Indonesia and then went to the Lembeh Straight in the same country. Those two new posting are under Komodo2 and Lembeh. October of 2015 I visited the Solomon Islands, and in Nov. of 2015 I visited the Maldives. I went in March 2016 to Egypt to dive in the Red Sea, and then in April I went to Indonesia to dive in Cenderwasi Bay, Bunaken National Marine Park, Manado, and the Derawan Island area(which includes Sangalaki, Kakaban, and Maratua Islands).I spent the month of Nov.2016 on two trips in Indonesia. The first trip was from Ambon to Sorong with a gallery named Ambon, and the second trip from Makassar to Wakatobi with the gallery titled Wakatobi. In June of 2017 I traveled to Palau, Micronesia and to Fakarava, French Polynesia. In April and May 2018 I returned to Indonesia doing a trip through the Forgotten Islands in southeast Indonesia then on to Lembeh 2018 and then aboard the Ambai touring North Sulawesi 2018, so please check out those photos as well!
