South Texas Star on a different island now!
Hi! My name is Ricky, (Rick Bell) Very fit, totally straight acting, active guy. Live for the world underwater and those I love in my life. Adopted at birth, grew up in Michigan, I call Corpus Christi Texas my home base. Stu*****d pre-med at Texas A&M, then changed majors to Marine Biology. Lived and stu*****d on a research ship in the south Pacific for several years off and on. I have my BA's and my Masters degree done as of 5-14-2014. I love to travel, love the outdoors, running, swimming, water polo, cars, music. I have a good sense of humor, very trusted and loved by those who know me.
I moved to Texas from Michigan 2007 with my BF Brad and based at his ***** house on the Island. I started pre-med at A&M in College Station. I did really well but decided to change majors to some Oceanography specialties. I am an avid scuba diver and a PADI Master Scuba Instructor. Swim team captain all through middle and ***** school. Yeah I love the water. I was accepted to several Oceanographic stu*****s in 2009 and spent a total of over four years working, stu***** and living on different research ships and programs. I have my BA in Marine Geology. The study of seismic plates and volcanic actions on the ocean floor. And another BA in Ocean Fluid Dynamics or the study of the deep water ocean flows. Just finished my MBA. I just got back to the USA from being on a research ship off in the Indian Ocean for the past 8 months. I am in California now July 2014 to be with Brad. Brad just exited the Marine Corps after his 4 tours of duty and 6 years with the Corps! We will be back in Texas the first August of 2014. Brad is going to continue working toward his commercial pilots license as well as finish his degree when he gets back.
Before I left for the Indian Ocean (September 2013) I took 14 months off teaching scuba diving in Hawaii. I also spent 11 months a few years back teaching in the Cayman Islands. I am pretty lucky I have been to and lived all over the South Pacific, (Fiji, Solomon Islands etc), Indian Ocean and also the Caribbean.
That is my update for now!!!
