I have done all of my dives over the last 4 years in the Salish Sea and I have an abundance of interest in all of the creatures that call it home, primarily the odd cryptobenthic fish that camouflage on the sea floor like the wonderful variety of sculpins that call the waters of the northwest home. Any natural reef in the Salish is my favorite dive destination to travel to!

At the age of 12, I experienced scuba diving for the first time and immediately fell in love with it. Unfortunately, there were no opportunities to continue diving in my hometown. However, upon relocating to the United States, I resumed my passion for diving. My love for the water and the ocean has inspired me to become an advocate for environmental protection.
