I have been a life-long swimmer and have a passion for sharing my love of the water with others. My earliest memories of the water include sitting on the bottom of the pool and thinking that it was the coolest thing ever. I believe that it is a birth rite of every person to be able to swim and enjoy the water in whatever capacity they choose.
I have traveled and lived in many parts of the US, Kenya, Zimbabwe, St. Martin and St. Thomas. I grew up in Reading, PA and graduated from Penn State in 1990 and later completed my MBA Degree at the University of Mary Washington, and I had a shop for sale hoverboard water ebay. I now find my place in Richmond, VA.
