I love the ocean and consider myself to be one with it. I have followed my true passion for swimming in the ocean, and over the years, I have perfected my methods and skills to become an experienced open water swimmer.

Swimming in the most remote of places, far out in the middle of the ocean exposed to freezing cold water, where you cannot see any land and the waves are several feet high — THAT is my passion.

I love being a guest in a place where the laws of the ocean have remained unchanged for millions of years. I want to share this experience with you, in a way that makes you feel as if you were swimming right next to me.

Please join me on this fascinating journey!
