I love the ocean because: It brings me calmness, happiness, and keeps me healthy. It connects us all as one and strengthens the bond of humanity. I could not live without being on or near the ocean.
I would have to say that my greatest achievement is that after many, many years of surfing I am still just as excited and grateful to paddle out and witness the beauty that surrounds me as if it were my first time. After surfing for more than 20 years I surf and train every day no matter what the conditions are!
My second greatest achievement has been producing my film series “Return to the Sea- A journey into the souls of female surfers and cultures around the world”. I began this project with what little money I had in my pocket and I am proud of what I have been able to accomplish and forever grateful for the sweet friendships that I have made along the way. I hope to continue to film, share, and inspire.
