Matt Roehl has yet to grow up and refuses to do so. Just kidding, Matt Roehl grew up in Fredricksburg, Virginia, just south of DC before moving to Columbus in 2008. He started diving in 2013, because it was the “next thing”. Prior to diving, Matt got his Pilot’s license and skydiving license – and diving seemed weird and fun. He knew he liked snorkeling — and he wanted to ride a sea turtle, however he was quickly told to never, EVER, do that. His favorite course he has taken was is the Drysuit course, because of how much diving it opened up for him. He has goals to eventually get into technical diving, but until then he is just in to expanding his knowledge by teaching a variety of different diving courses.
