Most memorable diving moment: My 1st ever breath underwater in Greece doing a DSD with my dad. I had never even considered diving – nearly 12 years after and I can’t imagine doing anything else than scuba diving.

About me: Scuba diving enabled me to travel to beautiful places and to experience many amazing adventures. From covering every atol in the Maldives by liveaboard to managing a small eco resort in a remote area in Indonesia, there is always something new to see and experience.
