The incessant and alluring movement of the oceans water has been part of my life from the day I was born up until today. Being by, in, on, or around the ocean makes me happy, and fascinates me in a magical trance. Bobbing around in the ocean has taught me to let go of control - when we're out in the ocean we are completely at the mercy of Mother Nature, so any type of ego is quickly humbled by a big crashing wave.
Nowadays I spend a lot of my time surfing, so I find myself avoiding crowds at all costs, and it is part of the reason I call the Central Coast of California home. Whether on my board or floating with a camera I am always stoked to be in the water.
