- My Summary
The Ocean has always been my world. Has always giving me the most amazing and unique experiences of my life since I was a kid. So my first step to make it part of my every day life was become a diver when I was 12 and as soon as I stepped in and enjoyed the under water world I realize that wanted to learn more.
That took me too do Oceanology in Baja California and at the same time I became a research diver and Divemaster. Working with great people and obvious in a world that every time that you jump in too you discover new and wonderful life experiences.
With passion of diving also gre my passion about Sharks and dedicated my years in Uni and after to work in pro of awareness, education and protection of sharks which years later brought me to Roatan, Honduras and create the Shark Legacy Project.
Here in Roatan I work as a IDC Staff Instructor and with the Shark Legacy Project which in the early 2010 with other organizations like the Roatan Marine Park, government, PEW, and tourism we manged to declare all national waters of Honduras a Sanctuary for Sharks.
Now comes the challenge creating the enough education and awareness in the community for them to protect our precious oceans and sharks.
