Devin grew up in Perrysburg, Ohio (a suburb of Toledo). He moved to Columbus for a job opportunity in 2013. He started diving in 2016 because he believes that if you want to try something new, you should take the risk because tomorrow is never guaranteed. His favorite course he has taken so far is a tie between Advanced Nitrox and Decompression Procedures (because it solidified his aspirations to get into technical diving) and the Divemaster course with Columbus Scuba (because it introduced him to so many awesome people and created many wonderful friendships). He just recently earned his Rebreather certification – so he is currently working on building a relationship with his machine until there is enough comfort and trust in that style of diving to move on to the next course and explore some awesome shipwrecks.
