The underwater world is an unique and amazing place. For me, it’s one of the few moments where I can tune everything out and just focus on the experience, and take long slow deep medative breaths.
One of my fellow scuba instructor candidates, Michael Nappier, is a veterinarian who is using SCUBA diving to address the disproportionately high suicide rates in the profession. Self-care has been a growing topic within the data science community, and I aim to bring the same passion and awe I have of diving to them, as a newly minted SDI Open Water Scuba Diver Instructor (OWSDI).
I am a TDI Intro to Cave Diver. One of the most amazing feelings you get from cave diving is the sense of flying as you are foating though air-clear water. Photos of my training dives can be found here.
