EZDIVE Online Magazine - The World's First Bilingual Diving Magazine

In late December I was asked if I would contribute to a Valentine's Special section for a Chinese diving magazine.  All they needed was for me to answer a few questions and offer a well-selected photo of Kathryn and I.

While a few things were not translated correctly, it was a nice surprise for Kathryn as she had no idea I had submitted this piece  Surprising for me too that our love story graces the same page as the love story of famed National Geographic underwater photographer, David Doubilet and his wife, Jennifer Hayes.
