I’m originally from Wexford, Pennsylvania and grew up on a lake. My dad introduced me to diving at a young age and I anxiously waited until I was old enough to get certified. I had always loved the water, once I had discovered the underwater world there was no turning back.
As a child I spent a lot of time in Grand Cayman and helped on dive boats through my high school and college breaks. In May 2014 I said goodbye to Virginia Tech and moved here permanently.
It’s hard to choose one dive site as a favorite when we have so many beautiful ones to choose from, however I would have to go with La Mesa. I love this site because even though it is a shallow site the typography is very different from the rest and there is always an abundance of fish life. The amount of color that you see on this dive site is incredible, There are always cute critters to see there. If you get the chance to dive this site you’ll understand why I love it so much! It’s also where I did my first night dive when I was younger so it will always have an memorable impact on me.
My favorite restaurant on island is probably Jessie’s Juice Bar, its more of a cafe than restaurant but they’ve got amazing juices, snacks, sandwiches and desserts! Its an awesome place to go for the day if you need to get any work done. I spend a lot of my time there when I am not working or doing schoolwork.
I absolutely hate the color purple!
I am originally from Australia and got certified here in Cayman on 06/05/2010.
I came to Cayman for a six-month holiday and ended up staying and working at diver supply until i got my instructors. Then I worked at Sunset.
Because every time I drop below the surface I’m always looking for new things. It’s awesome to be able to show people new things as well. The North Wall is amazing and you never know what you will see.
My favorite site would have to be the Wreck of the Doc Paulson. The sand flats are a good feeding ground for the Rays and Headshield Slugs. Plus you never know what you will find inside the wreck i.e Gimpy the Eel
Favorite restaurant would have to be Casanovas just because he can play “Stairway to Heaven” on the harp and the food is awesome.
I’m one of a kind auzzy! I love the thrill of learning new and fun stuff. My favorite talent is been able to handle a Lion Fish, but please don’t try this at home.
