- My Summary
From an early age, I was fascinated by underwater life. This is mainly thanks to the TV-series of diving pioneer Jacques-Yves Cousteau. But there was also the series with Flipper the dolphin ! When I turned eight, my father gave me a small divers watch. That was 1973.
Fast forward a few decades - in 1999 I find myself in tropical waters. My wife Kathleen introduced me to diving. Nowadays I am a passionate sports diver [ PADI AOW ].
I have been lucky to be able to dive in different parts of the world and observe marine life, coral reefs and its inhabitants. With an analog Sea and Sea UW-photocamera, I like to keep track of my visits to the ocean.
The small watch with the Pontiac clockwork is still in my possession. It was meant to be.
