FAVOURITE DIVE:  "As long as I am underwater, it's a great dive!! I don't really have a favourite dive, but I enjoy dives that exercise my skills at plannng and executing them safely. Cave, wreck and ice diving come to mind as dives that I find are wonderful escapes from the day to day grind." 
HISTORY:  Ken certified in Hawaii in 1997. This was an unplanned event to "kill a little time" during an otherwise uneventful trip. Upon returning to Calgary, he tried local diving and found that the local environment provided a great foundation to test out his Type A personality. In 1999, he became an Open Water Scuba Instructor and found that he enjoyed teaching scuba skills to new divers. It was also a guaranteed way for him to get scuba buddies after he burned out two other divers - apparently diving everyday had it's limitations for others! Since then Ken has continued his dive training into technical diving and increasing his skills at teaching the sport to others. 
ON DIVING:  "Diving lets me experience the underwater world in a fashion that most people can only dream of! It is the only sport that I can continually learn new skills or apply old skills to a variety of different environments. It's all about escaping, exploring and experiencing for me!! And I get the privilge of teaching others to do the same!!"
