During his time in the Navy, Jonathan was able to dive the world (Australia, Bahamas, Caymans, Florida Keys, Mexico, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Pacific Coast, Atlantic Coast, Hawaii), amassing hundreds of dives.  Jonathan currently holds his MBA and FAA Commercial Pilot (Multi-engine / Instrument) rating, but his true passion is everything SCUBA, including instruction.  His favorite dives are sidemount technical, involving staged decompression and deep wreck dives – to include USS Spiegel Grove in Key Largo; and the “Great Carrier Reef” the USS Oriskany, a former US Navy aircraft carrier that is the largest artificial reef in the world.  Jonathan is a Cub Master for local Cub Scout Pack 1806 in Huntingtown, MD and is certified as a Boy Scouts of America Youth Leader – so if your local Troop would like to earn their Scuba Merit Badge please give Southern Maryland Divers a call.
