I was Certified 1987. Have logged dives in Hawaii, Bahamas, Florida, Ohio, Indiana, Canada and of course my home state of Michigan. I enjoy my wife and 4 boys who are starting to show an interest in diving. I am an avid photographer and videographer. I like hunting, dirt bikes and autos. I’m a professional grower in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The greenhouse I work at sells our product to independent garden centers all over the Midwest and southern states through our broker.

I really enjoy diving no matter where the location. Every location has something to offer you just have to know where to look. I’ll grub if I have too.

My dive boat project finally to the point of usable. I still need to build a dive ladder and bench but she’s ready for some action.

Did a paid diving job today. A local country club has a small marina and one of their boaters tied off on the Mooring line wrong and caused the buoy rope and chain to get entangled. I dove down to the end of the rope at 30’ and was able to reach down into the mud and untangle the rope from a bunch of studs sticking out of an old flat head V8 engine block that was being used as a weight. After clearing the rope and pulling it out of the weeds I returned to the weight to work on the chain. The 3/8 links had worked themselves over the studs sticking out and had wrapped around the block several times. I was able to work the block free enough of the mud to flip it over two times allowing the chain to fully extend and be attached to the buoy properly. The maintenance men were thrilled but I suggested to stop using blocks for weights or to to at least remove the studs from the blocks. Great dive.
