My passion is diving and sharing the underwater world with anyone who is willing to take a virtual trip! From dive one I was hooked and could not get enough. Now I have dedicated my life to diving. People that don't dive keep asking me "Why?"

Why do you dive? Why do you travel? What do you see?

I created this site in an attempt to show you why I can't get enough of the underwater world and allow you to see what I see with a virtual view through my mask. I hope you enjoy the images and when you are ready I would love to introduce you to the underwater world in person.

"For most people, this is as close to being an astronaut as you'll ever get. It's leaving planet Earth behind and entering an alien world."
