Joe Smith is a retired Army logistics officer with 20 years of active duty. After returning from deployment to Iraq in 2006, his philosophy became – life is too short not to do the things you love! After a second deployment and settling into his next duty station in Atlanta, he learned to SCUBA dive and has enjoyed the peaceful zen the underwater world provides ever since. “The ocean has some of the coolest creatures on the planet, especially sharks…my favorite! I never get tired of talking to people about sharks, diving, and shark conservation. Did I mention I love sharks?” Joe also enjoys photography, travel, music, and camping.
