Patrick from Elkridge MD | Scuba Diver

I am a US Army Warrant Officer with 14 years of service. Originally from upstate NY, I have lived all over the United States and have spent a great deal of time in the Middle East. I initially learned to dive in Qatar in 1999, and after having been out of the water for several years due to service obligations, frequent moves, the theft of my gear, and other reasons, started diving again in June 2009. I have decided to commit myself to becoming very active in diving, with a goal of becoming a dive professional upon retirement from the military in 6 years. My personal goal is to log at least 8 dives per month year round until that time to build experience in a variety of settings and with a wide range of equipment.

Most of my current diving is conducted in a drysuit in the cold, murky waters off the coast of Ocean City, MD and hopefully NJ in the near future. I’m basically down for anything within driving distance, and am available most weekends, so if you’re looking to go diving, get in touch! I am also a volunteer Public Safety Diver and Nationally Registered EMT for Howard County Fire and Rescue.

When not diving, I love surfing, backpacking, trail running, cycling, and a variety of outdoor activities. Aside from that, I’m a fairly normal guy who likes to have a cold beer, shoot some pool, listen to live music, etc.

Welcome aboard...

Just thought I’d shout out a hi... I see you are down around a site I’ve been looking at hitting for a while... Windy Point Park. Still haven’t had the chance to get that way.

Enjoy some diving this season.
