- My Summary
Well... Born in Rome in the year of the Rat, Lived in Thailand and Trinidad before returning to Holland. Became a social worker in 1997 and a Dive-instructor in 2002 ; Worked in Holland, France, Bonaire, Curacao, Mexico and Indonesia.During my travels, work and dives I have seen a lot of Beautiful things , however I can't help seeing the decline of the aquatic world and especially during my time in Indonesia I have seen horrible things ranging from boats full of dead sharks, chopped up stingrays, Manta Rays, Turtles etc. All being sold in a protected marine park under the ' watchful' eyes of the local rangers. The AWARE movement gets results and I believe we can make a change so let's go for it!
