"My biggest passion is showing the connection between men, the ocean and its creatures that accept our presence and welcome us in to their habitat. I believe that we, the privileged people who get to visit the underwater world, have a mission to show the rest of the world the wonders that await below the surface, so we can appreciate, respect and protect this fragile environment."
