A little bit about myself. I am proud to have served my country in the United States Navy as a Internal Communication Electrician. While stationed overseas in Japan we visited many places. One destination on my travels brought me to Pattaya Beach, Thailand. Already with a love of the ocean, I was able to experience what below the water held and I have been hooked ever since. Once I finished my tour I became an Electrician and Process Control Engineer for United States Gypsum. To help take care of my family I shifted jobs to Reliability Engineer at Georgia Pacific Hawthorne, due to market conditions Hawthorne sadly closed. With a continued love for the water and Scuba Diving the decision was made to venture out and open Scuba Monkey Dive Center. After a short time and thanks to our customers we have enjoyed a successful business and expanded from a modest space to our current location. In this location we have the opportunity to expand Diving to include Swim classes and all the amenities of an Aquatic Center.

Over the years I have had the pleasure of working in a number of environments, starting in various manufacturing plants until I found myself working for a biomedical facility. My career had me travel the world and allowed me to make a lot of friends I have to this day. As the years progressed, I found myself wanting more. The dream of taking my love of the water and turning into a business came to seem possible. Owning a dive shop always seemed like a far away dream, but I have now realized the dream of making a living doing something I enjoy every day. I have always loved diving, now I get to take others with me diving in unique locations. My favorite hobby is the hunt for shark's teeth along Florida's coast, and I really enjoy taking divers down to find their first big Megalodon tooth. I see the biggest smiles on divers the day of their first find, and there is no greater feeling. I am excited for the future with our new swim center. I love the idea of teaching children water safety and watching them grow over the years from swimmers into divers, with all the joy that will give them the rest of their lives.

I have always had a deep love for the water and any activity that would get me on it or in it. Growing up spending summers at the springs and on boats are some of my fondest memories. It wasn't until I met Tim that I was introduced to Scuba Diving. It has very quickly become my absolute favorite thing to do and has only made my love of the water grow. I enjoy salt water diving the most especially lobstering, wrecks and reef dives. I am looking forward to progressing in my diving career in the future and am very excited about the opportunities that the new aquatic center is bringing.
