  Ed fell in love with diving after visiting Cozumel in 1995, and ever since it has consumed his life.  Over the next 6 years he returned to Cozumel approximately 20 times where he honed his diving skills.  In 2001 he moved to the Caribbean, living on several islands where he expanded his SCUBA education.  In 2005 he obtained his Instructor rating, so he could expand into teaching. From there he lived and worked on the islands of St. Thomas, St. John, St. Kitts, and St. Lucia. Satisfied with the time he spent exploring the Caribbean, Ed relocated to the island of Kauai, where he worked for the next year diving the beautiful waters of the Pacific. Learning about all the Pelagic life surrounding the remote Hawaiian islands. An opportunity arose in 2010 to work on the island of Pemba off the coast of Tanzania, where he managed the dive operation of Swahili Divers and fell in love with the Indian Ocean and its vibrant marine life. It was taking photos of the nudibranchs and the bearded morays that led to his passion for underwater photography. In an effort to expand his horizons and see more of the underwater world, Ed next took on managing the dive operation at Qamea Resort & Spa on the beautiful island of Qamea, Fiji.  In this role, he found countless opportunities to take beautiful photographs, as well as to learn about new cultures. Both of these are important elements that drive the tourism in Fiji. To be closer to his family, in 2013 Ed returned to Georgia where he continued working as an Instructor.  He currently is the product manager for Dive Georgia, and loves all things SCUBA gear.  If you are ever in the shop Ed would love to talk gear, underwater photography, or exotic diving destinations with you.
