I thought it would only be fitting to sit down with each of our instructors and get to know them on a more personal level. Sure, we all know who Grady is, but I thought it would be fun to do an interview and ask some basic questions. I actually caught him the night of the October Dive Club meeting while he had his feet kicked up on the desk and I’m pretty sure he was playing a computer game. I stumped him once but told him that this wasn’t a test for a grade so he was doing just fine .
How did you get started diving? You know as in what made you take the leap into the water.
I grew up at Grand Lake, always had a mask and fins but was tired of not being able to see anything. When I was 32 years old I was at a charity auction and wound up purchasing 2 classes.
How long have you been diving?
I was certified in 1989.
How many dives do you make in a typical year?
