I want to see that which I haven’t seen, both in the world on which I live and that within myself.
I’m 32, a non-traditional student about to graduate from Oregon State University-Cascades with a degree in Outdoor Recreation, Leadership, and Tourism and a minor in Business and Entrepreneurship. I want to apply the knowledge and experience that school has given me and combine the phenomenal offer Blue Season Bali has made to create a new life somewhere tropical. It’s been good thus far, but I’m ready for amazing.
Since a trip to Florida when I was 12, I’ve been infatuated with the ocean and warm weather. The ocean lifestyle is so appealing as someone that grew up landlocked in NE Montana. It was especially appealing when winter temperatures in my hometown of Wolf Point, MT dipped below freezing enroute to an average low winter temperature of about 4 degrees. Brrrr!
I’ve spent time on the ocean fishing, commuting, and as a kiteboarder, but I’ve never spent any more than a short while underwater with a snorkel…..in cloudy water. It was foreign, but exhilarating. Everything was a discovery as I bobbed around for those few minutes.
Based on my personality and love of adventure, I have no doubt that diving will blow me away. So many people on the BestDiveJob.com blog share that feeling of being hooked and finding their passion after only the first dives. I can’t wait to see and hear that excitement myself when my life has officially been changed and I’m a PADI instructor sharing the joy of diving and the ocean with those new to the sport.
I want to change my life. I want to strike out on new adventures. I want to learn new skills and refine the old. I want to experience the sensation of a vast oceanic world from below the surface. I want to feel the warmth of the tropical water and the warmth of the local people. I want to eat fresh seafood every day.
I want to share this experience with you.
It’s the least I can do for your support and after all, you and Blue Season Bali are ultimately the reason that I’ll be flying to Indonesia in a couple of months. You’re the ones supporting and promoting the reality that I’m about to change my life and become a PADI Instructor. I’ll be working with Blue Season Bali on their plan for documenting the life changing experience. I have basic social/web/video experience and some gear (audio & video) that will definitely make the trip and be a huge piece of my tropical, exotic, underwater, and over the top adventure as I commit to becoming a PADI instructor…..in Bali.
That and if there’s a chance, I wanna learn to surf on perfect waves on perfect days in Indo.

I am excited and enthusiastic about the possibility and extremely grateful to Blue Season Bali for their offer to change my life.
