How long have you been doing surveys?
When did you join the Golden Hamlet Club?
Where do you survey?
The majority of my surveys are in Cozumel, although I have done surveys in other parts of the Caribbean, as well as the South Pacific.
Do you have a favorite fish or invertebrate? Why?
For me, I love finding Cherubfish. They can be abundant in Cozumel, but many people don't even notice them.

What is your favorite thing/memory about REEF and the Volunteer Survey Project?
The REEF members are what makes the REEF survey trips so wonderful. I love how everyone is so helpful. And I learn new things all the time!
Feel free to share anything special about your 1,000th survey (site, location, special fish, etc.)
My 1,000th survey was in Cozumel, but I don't remember the details.
Feel free to share anything else about yourself and your diving adventures!
I've been a Cozumel REEF Field Survey Trip Leader for 8 years now. I enjoy teaching people and exploring new places. And it amazes me that I keep finding new species here in Cozumel!
