Freediving is a chance for me to relax, let go and explore the underwater world. I started two years ago after reading a book called Deep by James Nestor. After completing my Stage 1 Freediving Course I met some fellow freediving friends and never looked back.
For those wanting to start, I recommend doing a beginner freediving course. It really introduces you to the sport and teaches you how to hold your breath for longer and stay safe in the ocean.

WHERE IS YOUR DREAM PLACE TO DIVE?
There are so many! Raga Ampat in Indonesia. Tonga, Egypt, The Carribean..
WHAT MAKES A HOME, A HOME?
Living with the poeple I love.
SOMETHING INTERESTING YOU HAVE LEARNT LATELY?
A Humpback Whale's song usually lasts for twenty minutes and can be heart up to thirty km's away.
WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR THE OCEAN
There are so many things! Small actions every day make a diference, such as recycling, bringing your reusables with you, picking up washed up rubbish when you visit the beach and keeping your single use plastics to a minimum.
