I am Steve from Oklahoma, I'm 49 and have been married for 30 years. I'm new to the forum, and relatively new to diving. I got my NAUI scuba diver cert in August 2010. It was one of the things I always wanted to do but never had the time or money. Wow diving has honestly changed my life, my wife learned to swim after 30 years of marriage. We have been somewhere in the Carribean every 4-6 months since. I have worked up and I got my DM in January. I work with the LDS a lot and greatly enjoy helping students and taking new divers to the ocean their 1st time. Diving has cut into my other interests but they kinda mix though. Im a volunteer Firefighter and Paramedic at my local fire department. I was a full time medic for a few years, but working 80 hrs/ week got old. I went back to machining, way better money and hours. I got started diving late but, better late then never. I hope to meet up with some of you diving! Till then make the best of the surface interval!
