What sparked your love for the ocean?

I’ve always had a strong connection to water as I grew up swimming and boogieboarding. When I moved to Santa Cruz for college in 2008 I had the fortuitous luck of getting a spot a stones throw away from a semi private break that I began to frequent and get back into the ocean mindset. It was also around the same time I began getting heavy into digital photography, but it would be a whole 4 years later before I could get a housing and take my camera back in the water with me.

There really is no equivalent to how water and light interact, and I think that is what draws me so strongly to anything water related. In the early mornings and late evenings, when the wind is low and the water is smooth and glassy, and the sun streaks across like spilled bucket of paint - you can’t find that anywhere else. It reflects in the attitudes of the people partaking in it. It’s so good for the soul, and has become a mandatory part of my priorities.

"I think writing really helps you heal yourself. I think if you write long enough, you will be a healthy person. That is, if you write what you need to write, as opposed to what will make money, or what will make fame."

"So build yourself as beautiful as you want your world to be. Wrap yourself in light, then give yourself away with your heart, your brush, your march, your art, your poetry, your play. And for every day you paint the war, take a week and paint the beauty, the colour, the shape of the landscape you’re marching towards. Everyone knows what you’re against; show them what you’re for."
