More about me:
Current president of Urban Network Dive Education & Resource Center. U.N.D.E.R. C located in Newark, New Jersey. I'm a people person, with a great sense of humor, but can never deliver a joke...I'm always off the mark! Other than that, I'm pretty easy to get along with, I work, pay taxes, try not to break the law and go diving when I can. I prefer warm water diving ,I average about 3 dive trips a year. (08 has been hard) Love to dive among coral reefs & walls with a lot of sea life. I'm still on the hunt for that "wow" photo! Not too big on wrecks, don't really care for avocados or creamed spinach but I do enjoy night dives :)
Still a Work in progress!!

Why not try to get with us to go to Ginny Springs, Florida, Sept. 13. I think the Florida, Georgia and Virginia clubs are all going.

The club is moving along slowly but we're hanging in there. I want to increase the membership and awareness of the sport. We haven't gone to Costa Rica but that's a thought, airfare is off the chart these days. Thanks for visiting our site and I don't know if we've met before but I see you are in gear! Are you associated with a club? If you are into quarry diving we offer that locally. Thanks for the shoutout.

Do you ever do any diving on the southern New Jersey shore? Living in Newark what is your favorite place to dive close by?

Thanks for the reply. I normally travel alone and the divers I have met on my journeys have been great.
