I live in Dallas, Texas, with his wife, Robyn and three children, Jack, Lily, and Josh. I first learned to dive after taking an Open Water course in 1992 while attending Southern Methodist University. However, diving did not become a serious hobby until I met my wife in 2000, who was also a casual diver at the time. For several years, we travelled around the Caribbean and Central America diving. Even our honeymoon was focused on diving, though, not exclusively, in Tahiti.
Not overly inspired by my point-and-shoot underwater photography; in 2005, I purchased my first dSLR, a Canon 20D. After 1,000s of ho-hum photos, we decided to book a trip to the Galapagos, where we met Mike Mesgleski, of the famed Jim Church School of U/W Photography in 2006. This trip launched a deep passion for both the underwater world and photography. Since then, our family and personal travels have been focused around my underwater photography.
However, these days, my priority is being a fully involved dad to three of the most energetic and amazing little kids. They each share in our passion of the water, marine life, and travel.
I hope you have enjoyed your time on this site.
