Richard from Highwood IL | Scuba Diver

Hi -

I live in the Midwest - near Chicago. I am a scuba diver and freediver. I am also a noob spearo.

I travel quite a bit for work and will travel to dive. Got into diving hard in 2020 - and will be even more intensely involved in 2021.

Deeply interested in exploring wrecks, reef and underwater life. Haven’t spent enough time in Lake Michigan. Love diving in the gritty North Atlantic (especially New Jersey) and heading down to Florida this winter should be cool...

This year I expect to hit Malaysia, Indonesia and possibly Australia as "work trips." Might hit up Maldives again if I can. I think Colombia could be an interesting destination I suspect as well. Thinking about doing a course with James Blackman from Divers Ready so he can school my ass. Maybe do the Sardine Run thing in S. Africa.

Or I can dive in Haigh Quarry.
