Starting with Open Water certification in 2007, I picked up a camera as I moved through cave and technical certifications.  A photographer since high school, my current Ikelite and Nikon set up is a big step up from the film Pentax with manual focus and prime lenses that I inherited from my father.

I believe that photography exists to share the many wonders of our planet. I take underwater pictures to show people what I see down there, and help them see how our actions above the surface impact life below it, as well as how important the eco system underwater is to our survival on the surface.
