Hi... my name is Skip. I had always wanted to get my SCUBA certs ... just never had the time or the money (or had the $ at the same time as I had the time???). Anyway... got my OW in July 2009. Finished my Nitrox. Finshed my Advanced in August. I am a NAUI accredited First Aid/CPR/AED/O2 Instructor... so, if you need your certification and are in the Houston area, let me know! I got my PADI Rescue Diver in Feb 2011 and just completed my PDIC Dive Supervisor certification! In May of 2012 I completed my PADI Master Scuba Diver ceritification.
True... only been diving since the summer of ’09... but, as of 7/23/13, have 186 dives! (Can you say, "Hooked!" - no pun intended).
Have been to Cozumel, the Bahamas (on a liveaboard), Antigua, Barbados, St. Lucia, Tortola, Turks & Caicos, St. Thomas, Key West, Moorea, Rangiroa, Raiatea, Bora Bora, etc.
My beautiful wife, Cindy, and I travel a couple of times per year and would love to meet up and dive... mainly because I can’t talk her into taking the class. HOWEVER, our youngest just got her OW certification! I am so thrilled for her.
Finally... I am also ordained as a non-denominational Pastor... and, as such, can officate weddings (or Renewal of Vows!). Looking for dive buddies in southeast Texas... and beyond.
