The ocean is passion at its finest. My life seems to be absorbed by it. So when it’s not near, it’s as if something is missing — because something truly is.
My passion for the ocean has determined my life path… where I went to college, where I have lived and will allow myself to live, and the type of woman I wanted and, luckily, have married and love to this day. In other words, the ocean is a priority. Not numero uno (because, let’s face it, there are more important things), but very much near the top.
I’ve been fortunate enough to not only live in and surf some different places, but to shoot them. While memory is a powerful tool, it really does something more for you when you are able to look back at the past through moments you’ve personally captured. It makes memories more intimate, even embellishes them a bit. I figure that, in time, I won’t be able to play around in the ocean the same way I do now because of different life responsibilities and just getting older. So I might as well have some moments from the past to show for it.
