United States Navy Veteran 15 years AT1(AW) Petty Officer First Class Seasoned traveler visiting 42+ countries 8 years spent at sea aboard aircraft carriers traveling around the world several times Professional Mate onboard dive boats in Key Largo Dive Master / Dive Instructor PADI / SSI Current Highly Experienced Technical / Cave / Wreck Diver (350+ Cave Dives) Sailing experience mostly related to <30' boats Very coachable, trainable and willing to learn. I am extremely friendly and personable and usually get along with just about anyone unless they prove themselves to be rude and disrespectful then I usually just ignore them. I live by five agreements: I don't make any assumptions, I never take anything personally, I always try to do my best, I am impeccable with my word and I don't mind what happens. I am a moderate, but usually don't involve myself with politics very much. My wife of 28 years passed away 5 years so now days I am always up for adventure. I enjoy flying as a private pilot, sailing, teaching scuba, cave diving or exploring air filled caves, backpacking, camping and working as an IT professional coach. I have always loved the water and sail whenever I get the chance. I lived aboard a sail boat for a summer in Key Largo, fixing it up to make it sea worthy and taking it out whenever I could before hurricane Irma destroyed it. I sailed the Alaskan coast with a friend for two weeks several years ago and absolutely loved it. I'm financially secure and at a point in my life where I can take some time off and do some more sailing.
