Project DEEP Alumni - Where are they now?
After receiving his business degree in a shade under 11 years, Steve quickly applied what he learned to become one of the most prolific scuba salesmen of our time. Able to sell a ketchup popsicle to a woman in white gloves, Steve consistently ranked in the top 10 nationwide for units sold in the pink mask/snorkel set category. Tragedy struck during a presentation to a group of blind nuns with chronic asthma. Not believing the nuns were really blind Steve began mocking his audience by making funny faces. Someone approached from behind and accidentally slapped him in the back, freezing his face permanently. With his poker face gone, Steve never sold another mask/snorkel set.
Day lookin' fierce!
This former Miss Holyoke had the world by the tail upon earning her c-card. Day's dream of becoming an underwater supermodel was realized when she was selected as the fresh face for BARE wetsuits. Exotic photo shoots, apppearing as Mrs. December in the Field And Stream "Nice Bass" calendar, and a new boy toy on her arm every week were just a few perks of her new found fame. Sadly, as so often is the case, her meteoric rise came to a screeching halt as stories detailing wild orgies, drug use and general bad behavior surfaced. She lost her gig with BARE, got dumped by Ryan Seacrest and was eventually arrested for Prosthetician on a street corner in Springfield while trying to sell glass eyes and ceramic bicuspids to an undercover officer.
Tuck Hall - DEEP alum, fashion icon, visionary. Once he received his c-card he entered the fashion world designing his own line of neoprene assless chaps. His flambuoyant style and vision were too much for New York so he pulled up stakes and settled in Idaho to begin his next business venture. Ten years later Tuck, or the "Sun Valley Madame" as he is now known, had established a high end all-male escort service. His clients include several A-list actors, politicians and professional athletes. A biography documenting the details of his amazing life titled "Tuck, Tuck, Goose!" hits the shelves December 15th.
You spin me right round baby...
Upon graduating from U-Mass (or so he thought) Jeff wandered aimlessly from place to place. He was desperately searching for anything that would fill the hole created after losing his altar boy position at a local church for being "too hairy". His travels eventually led him to San Francisco where he was welcomed with open arms. He landed a job as an intern for Gavin Newsome where he quickly made a name for himself as a real go getter with baby smooth buttocks. Always fearful of rejection, Jeff subjected himself to weekly full body waxings which eventually led to the opening of his own waxing salon/ramen shop in the heart of the Castro.
Unlike other DEEP alumni Erik was already an accomplished diver before registering for Dave's class. In fact, mid-way through the semester when Dave fell ill Erik took over the teaching duties certifying all 40 students himself. As a ten year old child prodigy he built the first commercially viable rebreather from an old vacuum cleaner in his Dad's garage. At 13 he was the youngest competitor at the Lake Placid Olympics coming home with 2 golds and a silver. Achievements such as these have made him fabulously wealthy. He tries to keep a low profile, spending most of his time working as the "Plastic Surgeon To The Stars", saving worms from rain drenched sidewalks and raising thoroughbred stallions.
A former heroin addict and Japanese porn star, Shawn fell in love with diving while filming The Little Spermaid. After completing the Project DEEP program Shawn summoned the strength to deal with his demons. He is proud to say that he hasn't touched any drug stronger than Rogaine or had sex with a Japanese midget in over 7 years. When he isn't diving he can be found online playing Warcraft against pimply teenagers or surfing Asian porn sites just to prove that he really isn't into that stuff anymore. Shawn is convinced that Dave Stillman and Project DEEP saved his life.
