Michael Rothschild is a pediatric otolaryngolgist in New York City and an avid scuba diver. He serves as a medical moderator for scubaboard.com, and has served as the dive chair and president of the NYC Sea Gypsies. He is also an award winning and published underwater photographer and videographer who lectures frequently on these topics.
While he certainly enjoys the warm, clear waters of the tropics, his passion for the underwater world has led him to explore and document the vibrant and diverse ecosystem right in his backyard, off the shores of New Jersey and Long Island. By bringing images of this world back to his non-diving friends and family, he is able to share his love for the marine environment with those who may never see if firsthand.
