My name is Ron. I have been a member of DiveBuddy.com for a while. I suppose that I should tell you a little about myself. You should know that I love diving and I love the oceans. I am certified through several agencies and in a number of specialties.
I support and promote sustainable use and responsible stewardship of the oceans and their resources. I also support research that will lead us to this end.
I really can’t tell you how many dives I actually have because I don’t really keep track of them the way I should.
I have earned an A.S. degree in Diving Business and Technology and an A.S. in Environmental Science. I am working toward my B.S. in Oceanography.
If I’m not working or taking classes at the local college, then I can usually be found doing something out of doors or in the water.
I am single.
I have two adult children (sons). I am very proud of both of them. And two grandson (Zack & Aiden) who I love very much.
I am a former US Navy Chief Petty Officer (CPO)
I like to run, swim and practice Kendo for exercise.
I also enjoy camping, hiking, boating, going to the beach, etc...
I don’t smoke. I do enjoy a little beer or wine occasionaly.
I don’t do drugs of any kind & I don’t hang around people who do drugs...
I value the "Finer Things" in life; like Love, Honesty, Hope, Trust, Faith, Having Fun, Family, Friendships, Affection, Simplicity, the satisfaction that comes from knowing I have done my best... I love to explore. I love a good adventure.
I am a man of Faith and I attend church services regularly, although I fear that I shall never be accused of being a saint.
I am not a wealthy man by any standard. I’m just a simple, hard working guy who is trying to survive and live the life that’s given to me; and maybe help a few folks along the way.
I enjoy a wide variety of foods but I will eat Mexican or Asian foods any time. I particularly like sushi.
