Who are we? Well, in the metaphysical sense I have no idea but at this moment in space-time we are Kerri Bingham and Hergen Spalink. Find our bios here.
Kerri Bingham | California, USA
Kerri used to open franchise restaurants before leaving it all behind to work in diving in the Caribbean. Kerri has a BS in Social Science from Portland State University and got certified to dive in the Hood Canal of Puget Sound.
Hergen Spalink | North Carolina, USA
Hergen was born in Germany, hence the strange name. Hergen grew up in North Carolina where he earned a BS in Biology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Hergen has been certified since he was 14 and spent time as a professional firefighter and public safety diver.
Kerri and Hergen met while working in the Caribbean and moved to Indonesia in 2006 to work on liveaboards. Both are PADI instructors with thousands of dives and Hergen was also a USCG masters licensed captain. From 2009 to 2012 they were the dive center and reservations managers for Critters@Lembeh, the dive operator at Lembeh Resort. In 2010 they founded Got Muck LLC, a travel agency registered in North Carolina. Since 2011 they have been running group trips all over Asia focusing primarily on Indonesia. In 2014 they became sponsored photographers for Nauticam USA. Their photography has appeared in numerous print and new media publications around the world including Scuba Diver TTL, Asian Diver, Asian Geographic, Scuba Diving, WetPixel, DivePhotoGuide, and more. Kerri and Hergen are also previous managing editors for DivePhotoGuide.com.
Kerri and Hergen currently live in Troutdale, Oregon but spend most of their time traveling and photographing.
