Atlanta, Georgia. I have been diving since 1987, mostly in the Caribbean, but I have been to Fiji twice and once to the Philippines. Starting with a Nikonos V, then a housed film SLR, I am now using a Nikon D300 in Aquatica housing, with an SB800 flash in a Subal housing, and Nikon 60mm and 105mm micro lenses. I only shoot macro/close-up, and I love looking for the little critters.

My favorite dive location is the Southern Cross Club on Little Cayman, BWI.

My most valuable asset is my wife/dive buddy Deborah (aka sharkbait!).

And I'm an old guy... from 1946. Retired civil engineer, but I still work part-time in engineering.
