I grew up on a horse farm outside Johannesburg, South Africa. The closest ocean was over 10 hours away and I loved being underwater - so my sister and I dreamt of being mermaids in the pool, in the river in the dam in the bath. This was all inevitable. 

Now I spend my days exploring, loving and protecting our oceans. The blue lifeblood of our beautiful planet. Our only planet. 

I am the founder of the I AM WATER Foundation and co-founder of I AM WATER Ocean Travel. I live, work and travel with my partner Peter - he has also taken all the underwater images you see here.
