Happy Birthday to Dan!

    I drew these shark cartoons for a good friend and AMAZING Scuba instructor, Dan Olexa, for his birthday yesterday. 
   Dan spent a week diving with me on a group trip to Roatan back in 2013, when I was a beginner... and EXTREMELY nervous. Through Dan's coaching, I got comfortable quickly, and by the end of the week he helped me earn 5 new certifications, and was encouraging me to go for Divemaster. If it hadn't been for Dan, I would have probably stopped at Open Water and gone on infrequent trips. Thanks to him, I discovered a true passion. And now I'm able to help others get into the sport I love so much. 
A big THANK YOU and a huge HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Dan!
