What sparked your love for the ocean?

I’ve always had a strong connection to water as I grew up swimming and boogieboarding. When I moved to Santa Cruz for college in 2008 I had the fortuitous luck of getting a spot a stones throw away from a semi private break that I began to frequent and get back into the ocean mindset. It was also around the same time I began getting heavy into digital photography, but it would be a whole 4 years later before I could get a housing and take my camera back in the water with me.

There really is no equivalent to how water and light interact, and I think that is what draws me so strongly to anything water related. In the early mornings and late evenings, when the wind is low and the water is smooth and glassy, and the sun streaks across like spilled bucket of paint - you can’t find that anywhere else. It reflects in the attitudes of the people partaking in it. It’s so good for the soul, and has become a mandatory part of my priorities.
