I started diving in 2000. Originally, I was only diving for lobster. But nowadays, I dive for fun and relaxation, and maybe even a few shark’s teeth now and then. I really enjoy working at Venice Dive Center. I meet so many new people every day and love listening to their stories and sharing a few of my own.

It has been my privilege to work at Venice Dive Shop for a little over 2 years. Since I began working I have advanced my certifications to include Rescue Diver. I enjoy diving as it is both relaxing and fun. My favorite place to dive so far is the Florida Keys. I am thrilled to share my knowledge and experience with customers in an effort to ensure that they will have the best dive experience.

I’ve been with the Venice Dive Center since June of 2017 when my Family and I moved down from Chicago. I am a retired Firefighter/Paramedic with almost 20 years of Underwater Rescue and Recovery Diving. Technical diving was great but recreational diving is my obsession now. I enjoy hearing stories and helping all of our customers both new and old. I can assist with everything from novice diving to Public Safety diving. Should you have a question I can’t answer I have no problem Googling it!
