Don, grew up on the North Shore of Massachusetts with a love for the ocean. Early exposure to TV shows like Jacques Cousteau, Sea Hunt, and, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea left him dreaming of becoming a scuba diver as far back as he can remember.
He has been a certified diver since 1992, and has been engaged in technical scuba diving since 2005. Don is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, and has worked for the Massachusetts Department of Correction for 30 years.
He currently lives in central Mass with his wife Karen, her two daughters, and their 4-year-old grandson Marshall, who he can’t wait to get certified.
