BIOGRAPHY:

During college Manny dove for sea urchins splitting the money with a partner and making about $100 dollars a day five days a week. As things started to progress he started diving on his own making up to $700 dollars a day. From there he dropped out of college and dove for sea urchins fulltime. Over time too many people got into it and the dollars started going down. He then moved into lobstering and has been there ever since.
