  • My NAUI Bio

    Inspired by TV shows like 'Sea Hunt' and 'The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau’, my first certification was through NAUI in 1976 in Southern California. I immediately fell in-love with diving and the underwater world. I have been diving in several parts of the world. Some of my favorite places to dive include: Southern California's Channel Islands, Monterey and Carmel Bays, the Cayman Islands and the Florida Keys. I have been diving the past 39+ years.

    I am a retired Fire Captain/Public Safety Diver. During the last 8 years of my 32 year career in the Fire Department, I served as the Dive Rescue Team Leader managing policies and procedures, training, equipment, budget, and overseeing a roster of 21 rescue divers.

    I specialize in training Public Safety Divers in all levels from: SCUBA Diver , Advanced SCUBA Diver to Underwater Search, Rescue, Recovery, use of large lift bags for vehicle recovery, Contaminated Water Diving, Altitude Diving, U/W Crime Scene Investigation, use of Full-Face Masks and Underwater Voice Communications, and NAUI Assistant Instructor and Divemaster programs.

    I am honored to be a member of NAUI's Public Safety Diving Advisory Panel.

    I am based in Florida but travel across the USA (and beyond) to train Public Safety Divers. Please visit my website:

    Let me know if I can help you start, or further, your SCUBA Diver training following NAUI's strong tradition of "Dive Safety Through Education."
