• Eat well: a whole food, plant-based diet and avoid processed foods
  • Love: the healing process of communication, staying true and connected to all close relationships
  • Power of the Mind: overcoming the self and unleash the potential
  • Move: exercising more

2018 had proven to be maybe the most important year of my journey in life. In this year I: learned to freedive, discovered the power of mind, and started the journey inwards; went vegan, exercised more and became even more conscious and informed on well-being; had amazing explorations and expeditions, saw magnificent ocean giants and wonderful tiny critters; stayed more in tune with nature, started a brand new cause; asked and reflected more of the ultimate questions: purpose of life and how to find fulfilment; stayed true to myself instead of seeking acceptance of others; spent more time loving and being loved.

In 2019 I hope I continue to get inspired, challenged, and grow; stay nourished by nature and live more consciously, sustainably; keep upholding the standard and do better work; find my drive, my purpose, my fulfilment.

I’ve always loved nature and plants since I was a child. And now I’m putting all my plant energy into a new venture:

Just watched this new released documentary from Netflix called Chasing Coral. It’s about how a group of filmmakers and scientists try to capture the global coral bleaching on cameras. It also tells your a lot about the coral and the whole ocean/ planetary eco system. In the end it’s nothing most of us divers don’t already know, but I think it’s important for people who don’t dive or know much about the ocean to see. And I think that should be EVERYONE. The corals and reefs really come to life and it’s so awesome and moving. This is what I want to do as well as a cause, to call for action and help chip in to turn the tide around in terms of saving our ocean. I completely related to all the people in the film, and can’t help but cried through the whole 2nd half. 😭😭😭

They also have very well thought-out call-to-action on the film website http://www.chasingcoral.com/ where you can pass the message around. You can also encourage the people around you to watch it as well.

The fight is down to us now. The diving we love, the food we eat, the life we are living, it all depends on you and me. And the corals – they don’t have much time left.

Just finished some upside compilation of the last 2 years’ aerial and timelapse footages.
