With my many dive travels, I have developed a true appreciation for marine organisms and believe underwater photographers help employ constructive change for our deteriorating seas through the use of striking images. With my pictures, I hope to increase awareness of our fragile marine ecosystems and encourage others to help protect our oceans.”
