When viewed from space the planet Earth is very much a “blue planet”. Not surprising as almost 71% of the Earth’s surface is water!
I think one of the things that has attracted me to scuba diving is the opportunity on practically every dive to see something new that I’ve never seen before. The more we dive I’ve discovered, the more we see. I started this blog as an opportunity to share some of those things with you.
A big part of my blog is about the Philippines, a country I’ve been traveling to since 2007. The Philippines is part of the “Coral Triangle” and has been called “the center of the center for marine bio-diversity” for the entire planet. I’ve been fortunate to have dived all over the Philippines, having made over 400 dives there as of 2019. In 2017 I published my first e-Book.

I’ve been active off and on for years on ScubaBoard , especially at the Philippine Paradise Divers sub-forum. My introduction to Facebook happened in 2007 when a member of our sub-forum created a Facebook group and invited all of us. Becoming a member of Philippine Paradise Divers was the very first item on my Facebook timeline! After a long period of inactivity the group was resurrected on September 21, 2019. It rapidly grew into an amazing Facebook group with lots of great content related to diving in the Philippines! There we find a group of people united by a passion for scuba diving and the Philippines! We’re building a great community and it’s something I’m excited to be a part of! Our group posts includes photography from some of the top photographers living in and visiting the Philippines, along with posts on environmental efforts, dive destinations, workshops, and trips. If you’re on Facebook (and who isn’t these days) come by and have a look. While you’re there, why not become a member?
Getting back to my blog, although currently posts and photos on the Philippines make up the majority of it, you can also find posts on the diving in Texas, Florida, Hawaii, and Micronesia.
Since March 2018 I’ve lived in Guam where I teach scuba diving and am also a full-time college student (never too old to learn). I’m currently working on a BS in Biology at the University of Guam. Of course I’m also continuing my underwater adventures! I look forward to sharing my adventures with you as I travel and explore life here on our blue planet!
