Jeff was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. After graduation, Jeff moved to Arizona and pursued his dream of becoming a fireman. He was hired by the Fire Department in 1995 and currently holds the rank of Captain/Paramedic. In addition to being a fireman, Jeff is a PADI Instructor. Jeff’s true passion is living on Maui where he loves to dive, certify divers, and see the joy in people’s faces as they experience the underwater world. Jeff loves photography and enjoys capturing beauty above, and especially below, the water on camera. He has traveled the world photographing both land and sea. When not teaching, guiding dives, or personally exploring the ocean floor, you will most likely find Jeff on the beach in his hometown of Lahaina enjoying the sunset with his beautiful wife, Jen, and their dog, Cooper.
