Becoming a scuba diver in 2012 is what triggered my waterlust and complete love affair with the ocean and all her amazing creatures. Underwater photography is truly just a hobby but I love the ability that it has given me to share all the wonderful things I've seen on my underwater adventures.


After living in south Florida for 10 years and diving in the warm waters off her coast, life brought me abruptly to California where her waters are not as warm and inviting lol. Travel to warm water destinations is a must but I've also found a niche exploring the local tidepools for all the wonderful creatures they hold.


I've also developed an insatiable love for travel and don't discriminate when it comes to taking beautiful photos on land as well. I have an obsession with visiting our gorgeous national and state parks and try to do so as often as possible.


I believe what Baba Dioum said:

"In the end, we will conserve only what we love, we will love only what we understand, and we will understand only what we are taught."


Thanks for visiting and never forget that "life is the bubbles under the sea"!!
