Below the Surface
Breathing easily underwater and supported by the comforting pressure of the sea, I feel free, again, to join the floating parade of beautiful, improbable lives around me. — Sy Montgomery, The Soul of an Octopus
Perhaps the most special part of my job involves capturing the bizarre, beautiful world below the surface of the ocean. Since obtaining my PADI certification in 2015, I have experienced the great pleasure of diving in various locations around the world, often as part of underwater science teams. From North Carolina to the Galápagos Islands to southern Belize, the enigmatic animals and ecosystems of the deep never fail to delight and surprise me.
