I started my life in Broomfield, Colorado many moons ago. Explored the Rocky Mountains while hiking and snowboarding every chance I got, enjoying the mile high city of Denver before spending a few years in Boulder. Eventually the cold winters lost their appeal, and I found a renewing warmth in Key West: I threw out those suits worn in Colorado offices and traded them in for wetsuits, and my cubicle and pushy boss were replaced with open water, sea turtles and schools of bottlenose dolphin. Splashed in to a life on the water as a Divemaster with Captain’s Corner Dive Shop in 2007, and became a Captain for the same company in 2010. I then bought my own boat, “Laid Back,” in the winter of 2011 and have been sharing my love for South Florida marine life on private charters ever since.
