Extreme Diver Interview – Steve Todd

So if there is one thing I can tell you about myself, it’s that I really enjoy doing these blog interviews and meeting up with all the divers who dive with Extreme Sports Scuba. I have a few interviews that are sitting, waiting to be published but I put a lot of thought in to which blog posts go live when. This week, as I’m sure you know, Extreme Sports has a big group of people down in Cozumel (enjoying the nice weather compared to ours I might add), so I decided that it would be fun to spotlight someone who was on the trip. Another thing that I was considering when doing this is so far, it worked out this way and I’m trying to keep it this way, we’ve been meeting our divers in boy girl order (should I say Man Woman?) so I was looking for a guy to post an interview for. Anibal Alameda came into the shop last week and I planned on using his interview, although we couldn’t find any pictures of him diving so Deb was going to work on that for me this week. Then later in the afternoon Steve Todd came in to get last minute things for the Cozumel trip and we cornered him. I asked if he’d be willing to be interviewed for the blog and he said sure, I keep coming back and I have great stories, they are all R rated or below. So while Steve (and the rest of the crew) are in Cozumel, let’s get to know Steve better, shall we?
