Bob was born in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, but moved around quite a bit while growing up. He has lived in Florida, Texas, multiple cities in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, and currently resides in Dublin, Ohio. Andy Silverman (the owner of Columbus Scuba) & Jude Divierte (a current instructor of Columbus Scuba) taught Bob how to dive in 2009. He started diving because he has always had a love for water sports and had lots of experience in the water from being a lifeguard and Water Safety Instructor. His most memorable dives are tied between the Bonne Terre Mines (in Missouri), the Spiegel Grove (in Florida), and The Trench (where he saw Katherine, the great white shark) in West Palm Beach, Florida. His goals related to SCUBA include attaining his Master Scuba Diver Trainer certification, building the SCUBA Camp program at Skyview Ranch, teaching his grand children to dive & diving the Great Barrier Reef.
