Growing up in Northern Wisconsin, Jorie had a strong passion for the water from a young age. After starting college in Superior WI, this passion grew even more as his diving career started. Along with this came a newfound interest in cold water diving and specifically in deep shipwreck diving.
Jorie has spent several years honing his skills in the cold waters of Lake Superior where he has done the majority of his diving. Through doing so, he has been able to pass on his love of the Lake and show others how to enjoy cold water diving. As an avid technical, rebreather diver/instructor and USCG Captain, Jorie enjoys teaching at all levels and is always looking forward to advancing his own knowledge both above and below the water.
