Introducing the 2022 committee…

What led you to scuba diving?
I have always loved the ocean and wanted a way to spend time completely immersed in that world. Scuba offered that.I’m an Open Water Advanced diver. I’ve dived with OMSAC for years now.

Pastimes when not underwater?
Open water swimming, pottery

What keeps you diving? 
The love of being in the ocean, that sense of peace and being connected to all. I feel that more freediving than on scuba.

What are you most excited about related to OMSAC and diving in the coming year?
Some excellent viz days.

Do you have a fond memory related to being an OMSAC member?

The last dive fest we had in CT was pretty cool. I love all my dive buddies.

If you had to recommend a Cape dive site, which one would it be and why?

A-Frame is my favorite despite its sometimes tricky access. There’s so much to see, interesting swim throughs, abundance of life.

If you could dive anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Red Sea and in South Africa, Sodwana and Aliwal to dive with sharks.

What, in your mind, makes a good dive buddy?
Someone who dives at your pace, checks in with you.

Be honest  What kind of dive buddy are you?
Mmm I’d like to think I’m okay. Not the best ever but average.

What is your best tip/trick for new divers?
Don’t rush and buy gear until you’re sure you like scuba and know what gear you really want.
