Bio: I did my first dives in a lake in South Dakota in 1962, not a good idea. No vis, nothing to do. It took a number of years for me to return to the water, this time in the ocean. What a change. As is my nature I simply went ballistic with my love for the ocean. I started with lobster at San Nic. My great friend and deck hand on the Mr. “C”, Lee Streit, taught me how to compete. Then on to wreck diving, Gerry Smith Dana McDown, Greg Swingle and Cliff Craft taught me wreck diving and the paranoia about wreck sites. Later a gentleman named Harry Davis decided to take under his wing and teach me how to free dive spearfish (breath hold). That absolutely changed my life. Harry taught me how to understand the habits of virtually every pelagic fish. He taught me how to find and observe every fish in the ocean. What a blessing.
I continued to research the Southern California coast for wrecks going forward. When working with PADI on the original tech diver manual production, I gave the team headed by Karl Shreeves an obscure graduation gift of a wreck I had not dove. The result was the first Grumman “Goose” documented off Catalina.
Gary Fabian and I became friends and research partners in the 1990’s. We worked together on a number of projects. The UB-88, the TBM in San Diego, the workboat (AKA Cape Charles also San Diego) the B-36 bomber in San Diego, the USS Burns, USS Vammen, USS Hopewell, a T-33 jet trainer off Mines Field at El Segundo for which I and my business partner Kyaa Heller both received Congressional commendations, a corsair off Dana Point, the widely publicized side scan of the Palawan and countless other projects.
We pursued these projects for their historical value and published them for the same. When and where we could locate families we provided closure and the opportunity for family members to go to sea with us for personal memorials. In the case of the USAAF T-33 we took more than 40 family members and an Air Force Honor Guard to sea for a memorial.
I still work on additional sites in Southern California today but my current responsibilities have limited my ability to devote much time right now. I look forward to publishing more in the future.
