Scuba Diving Instructor
I am just your average family guy. My daughter is my life. I enjoy diving and helping others learn about playing in the water. When I retire, I want to look back and know that millions have benefited from a better understanding of our ocean. I strive to help every person learn to snorkel or scuba dive. I am "the" guy who can teach you about snorkeling, scuba diving or living out your adventure in local lakes and Monterey. I enjoy diving locally and try each day to run SACSCUBA as the premier training center it is meant to be. Join me on a dive, in a class or traveling to my next adventure. Discover Diving! Ask your local parks and rec department. This is my premier program where you can learn all about SNORKELING, Skin Diving & Scuba.

Who would ever think of local scuba divers as Environmentalists? Well we surprised everyone by removing 60 lbs of trash, debris and metal this Father's day weekend. There was a nice turnout. Everyone was surprised by the "clean" look of Lake Tahoe. When they went under the surface they were surprised to find beer tabs (from the '70's), old cans, sunglasses, a sailboat mast, car parts, tables, chairs, etc. I first suggested Hurricane Bay after diving there last year and observing the ammount of trash in such a popular fishing site. With all of the moorings and boat usage it is not a wonder how much debris is there. After our work, we all enjoyed a bbq and played in the water. I wou
Here in Sacramento, we are fortunate enough to have access to many, many parks, lakes and rivers. We are minutes from the Sierras and a couple of hours from the Pacific Ocean. Living and playing in this area affords us the unique opportunity to discover and play locally in our aquatic environment. To date, there are more than 17 Parks and Recreation centers that have a pool for our neighborhoods. Activities that are often overlooked in these environments are snorkeling and scuba diving. For me, scuba diving and snorkeling uniquely offers the ability to transform a person in four ways: immersion, active participation, environmental relationships and emotional well-being. Immersion is a th

Can you believe this warm weather? Who would have thought that we would be warming up so quickly. I was surprised to see divers and snorkelers on the Lake recently. This type of weather always reminds me to ask about Scuba review or refresher classes. I know we are all safe when we are around the water, but it never hurts to be reminded about the past few years and the expectation that 6 or more people will not be with us, due to water related accidents. I am a snorkeler and scuba diver, as are most of us who love to see in the water. I can't get enough of the rivers and lakes we have access to around here. Even the Delta feels good on a hot day. Why a Refresher program you may a
