In 1986, the Underwater Connection
offered a Discover Scuba Experience at North Middle School in Menomonee
Falls…and I took them up on that offer. Those few minutes in the pool
had me hooked. I didn't know how, or when, or in what capacity scuba
diving would be a part of my life, but I knew it would be a BIG part of
my life. Since then I have had the great privilege to train over 1000
divers, travel to wonderful exotic locations, explore some incredible
shipwrecks, and make some great friends along the way. As a PADI Master
Scuba Diver Trainer, and a TDI Trimix Instructor, I get the opportunity
to train divers in a wide range of courses, but nothing compares with
introducing someone to the underwater world for the first time with the
Discover Scuba Experience. It certainly had a big impact on me!

(teaches all over great lakes )
Let me briefly relate how I got interested
in technical diving. It’s not a unique story, so you may be able to
identify with my experiences. Originally certified in the
mid-1970’s, by the mid-90’s I was an avid diver taking trips to the
Caribbean as well as more regional trips. I was actively teaching all
levels of recreational scuba courses as well. I discovered wreck diving
in the Great Lakes was quickly becoming my favorite form of relaxation.
However, I found I wanted more. More bottom time, more wrecks, and more
pristine wrecks. In order to fulfill my dream, I needed to venture
outside the world of recreational diving and learn about decompression
diving and utilizing a variety of breathing gasses.
Since getting into technical diving, I have visited wrecks all around the Great Lakes. I have had the pleasure and honor of visiting some of the best shipwrecks in the world. I have had the opportunity to stretch myself and accomplish things I never thought possible. I have also had the pleasure of meeting and diving with some of the greatest people you could ever hope to meet, many of whom have become not just dive buddies, but lifelong friends.
I love the Great Lakes and their wrecks so much; I decided to share the experience with others. I offer Nitrox Diver, Wreck Diver, Advanced Wreck Diver, Advanced Nitrox, Decompression Procedures, Extended Range, Trimix Diver, Advanced Trimix Diver, Nitrox Gas Blender, and Advanced Gas Blender courses. If you have interest in, or questions about technical diving email or call me !
Rebreather Instructor to Advanced Trimix and Advanced Trimix Instructor Trainer
TDI and SDI Instructor Trainer and a NAUI Technical Instructor.It is our goal to provide you with the best possible training available whether it's at the diver or instructor level. We also strive to put together safe and truly memorable expeditions.
To us training is a journey and should be enjoyed. We will work with you to establish a solid skills foundation that is suitable for the level of training you are engaged in. Once this is done, a training schedule will be mapped out that will allow you to achieve your future diving objectives.
Divers progress at different paces. Some
require a little more time to become proficient at skills and we
recognize that. It's for this very reason that many of the courses we
offer exceed the minimum dive numbers and in some cases by as much as
100%. We strongly believe in ensuring that you can competently execute
all the skills required at a certain level before progressing on. This
builds confidence and self reliance.
When it comes to instructor training, whether it's on a recreational or technical level, we strive to build mastery of skills and also the ability to teach those skills to students at a pace that they will find both stimulating and enjoyable.
Expedition Diving is what we have become known for. The Empress of Ireland has been a major focus for the past several years, but we also run expeditions to some of the most remote locations on earth. Regardless of the location, your safety and enjoyment are our primary goals.
Whether you are a student, instructor
candidate, or a seasoned technical diver, you have an expectation that
we will provide you with either thorough training or a well structured
expedition, and we won't disappoint you. I guarantee it!
