ON DIVING:  I started diving in 1975 - yes, there was Scuba back then, and NO I wasn't breathing through a reed in the Nile . . . GRIN!

Seven-Tenths - that's the part of the earth covered in water, and it's a world that Scuba opens up to anyone willing to enter it with respect, dive it with confidence, and leave it untouched for the next visitor. It is a joy and a priviledge to share that world with my students.

"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds on in its net of wonder forever."
Jacques Yves Cousteau
FAVORITE SAYING:  "I have the body of a God . . . unfortunately, it's BUDDHA!" 
FAVORITE DIVE:  Any where I haven't gone diving before. . . GRIN!
