Additional Info

I first started Diving in 1992 and became a PADI MSDT in 1998 and NAUI Scuba Instructor 2017. I have been diving in the Pacific Northwest for almost 30 years. I currently live in Seattle, WA, with my wife and dive teammate Deana Fraser. I love working at growing the local diving community and sharing my passion with all who are interested and am on the Board of Directors for GUE Seattle. I embraced GUE in 2018 after Deana had taken Fundamentals and it was humbling showing me there was still much more about diving I needed and wanted to learn. Since then I have completed Tech 1 and have a whole new world to explore
