Most memorable diving moment: When a huge pod of bottlenose dolphins decided to join me on a dive. We were completely surrounded by them. Played with us underwater for 15 minutes before heading back off into the blue.

About me: It was always a dream of mine to go diving, and I finally got the chance while living in Southeast Asia. I was hooked from the first dive. If I’m not underwater, you can find me in the forest or high up on a mountain somewhere.
