"Professional diver, semi-pro soldier and amateur writer." is a good description for me! I'm a DCBC certified commercial scuba diver and surface supply diver, a CAUS Level 2 scientific diver, and PADI Divemaster and Master Scuba Diver. An active reservist (I'm an armoured recce soldier) in the Canadian Army, I've served over 13years and volunteered for and deployed to three overseas NATO tours; to Bosnia once and twice to Afghanistan. In September 2010, I started writing my blog, Cold Water Diver; where I write about dive locations and diving related things in addition to maintaining two large photo archives of identified marine life. I also started posting regularly to my YouTube Channel with videos I've shot or compiled from footage and stills from dives I've been on. In addition, I make contributions to ScubaDiverLife.com, headed up by Nadia Aly.
On my off time I enjoy cinema, reading, video games, and recreational diving and shooting. I maintain a professional interest in diving sciences and medicine, armoured vehicles and counterinsurgency/military studies.
