Angel has served as president since 2023.  He moved to Savannah in 2010 working for Gulfstream Aerospace, he is currently Vice President of Innovation and Future Programs.  He is married with three daughters who are all rescue and scientific divers.  His wife and youngest daughter are active members of SCUBAnaughts.  Angel received his bachelor’s degree in aeronautical engineering from Cal Poly State University and his master’s degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Washington.
