Hobbies & Interests

Since first learning to scuba dive at the Akron, Ohio YMCA in 1968, I have been a strong enthusiast of the sport. Some of my favorite pastimes involve interactions with Dolphins; by simply observing them swimming or while walking the Florida beaches, and boating along the intercostal waterway in southwest Florida.

My wife Ellie and I love to take friends and relatives on mini-nature tours around Florida's waterways. We are able to watch eagles building nests, osprey diving for fish, dolphins playing and finding breakfast and occasionally we even see the exclusive manatees swimming nearby.
