I learned to dive in 2008 as I turned 50, a lifelong desire finally realized. I immediately began to create time to dive around my full-time career as a Physical Therapist and owner of Orthopedic and Spine Care Physical Therapy in Huntington Beach.

Within the first 2 years I became intrigued with underwater photography, starting with a wrist strap point and shoot.  Winning one of Barbara Jones’ photos at the scuba show introduced me to OCUPS. The mentorship and friendships within OCUPS has been priceless for me.

I now use an Olympus OMD EM5 mirrorless camera in a Nauticam housing. The small size makes it easier for me to travel with as I explore the world of Scuba.

Mexico is one of my favorite dive destinations from Cabo Pulmo and the Sea of Cortez, to the Yucatan and the Socorro Islands. California diving in the Channel Islands is my most frequent destination year-round. I have been able to travel to the South Pacific, Philippines, and Indonesia with some wonderful dive buddies and cherish those times.

I have placed several times in the SoCal Shootout and placed 1st in the San Diego County Fair 2017 Underwater photo division. I have placed 1st in Amateur and then 1st Advanced in the OCUPS annual mini competitions as well as 3rd in the Open category.
