Why do you support the Surfrider Foundation and our mission to protect the world’s ocean, waves and beaches?
I support the Surfrider foundation and its mission because the ocean is a life source for our planet and all of its creatures and people's who dwell on it . It provides so much to so many . It is a precious treasure that we all need to do our best to protect and preserve.
What coastal issue are you most passionate about?
Well population is such a big contributor to so many issues that we are currently facing. It's overwhelming and mind blowing what is really happening to our planet but I just try and take it one day at time and make simple choices. Not putting pesticides on our lawn. Reducing single use plastics. Picking up trash on the local beaches. The little things go a long way sometimes.
What is your profession?
I am an artist and designer.
What are some of your main interests or hobbies?
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Surfing , drawing , painting , listening to music and watching movies , eating good food and enjoying good drinks.
What does the ocean mean to you and why should it be protected?
I've spent most of my 47 years on this blue and green ball in or around the ocean. I hope that it will be around for future generations upon generations to marvel, learn and grow from its many life teaching lessons. If it's not taken care of we won't be here either. Mother Nature will win though. She always does. We just need to look and listen and help .
