I am an SSI Dive Master and I’m working toward being a SCUBA instructor. This blog is a collection of dive information and travel, as well as other types of travel and outdoor experiences. You should totally check out my (mostly) diving videos on YouTube. I’m a travel coordinator in the Florida Tampa Bay Area and enjoy dancing, reading and writing, science, and, of course, being outdoors.

I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move. – Robert Louis Stevenson

I currently hold a BS in Integrative Biology and am returning to school for Health Science. Don’t be surprised if you also spot my dog here and there. Laika is a German Shepherd mixed breed, 35 lbs and 6 years old. Laika enjoys long walks on the dog beach, camping and hiking, paddle boarding, and modeling SCUBA products. She and I make a great team.
