What got you started in diving?

I dreamed about diving for as long as I can remember. As soon as I was old enough to dive, my family enrolled me in an open water class as a christmas present.

What keeps you exited about diving?

I still dream about diving. The feeling of neutral buoyancy, the rhythmic sound of breathing, and the pressure of water all around just feels right to me. I still enjoy just jumping in the water and blowing bubbles.

What is your favorite type of diving?

I enjoy diving for diving. Wrecks, reefs, and caves are all beautiful, and scientific diving is rewarding, but at the end of the day simply blowing bubbles and swimming around is the best meditation, and makes me the happiest.
