From the age of 5, accompanied by my mother and grandmother, I spent my school holidays on an uninhabited island on the coast of Panama, where we lived in close contact and dependence upon the sea.
These early years awakened my passion for the ocean and a dream of traveling the world upon its surface. During my adult life I have participated in several different industries such as aviation, automotive and more recently in the financial world.
In 2002, I bought my first sailing boat, and it was soon followed in quick succession by a second and a third. Aboard these sailing catamarans, I had the privilege to see many amazing places and experience at first hand one of the wonders of the world, “a magnificent coral reef”. On one of my trips, I met Greg, who was captain of a large motor yacht docked next to me in San Andres, Colombia.
He invited me for a tour of his vessel and it was at this time I also got to see some of his amazing photographs. Greg explained that in the future, he would like to publish some of the vast collection of images he had taken as he travelled the world. After many years, our paths crossed again this time we both arrived with a firm conviction to support the conservation and health of the oceans; the greatest lungs of our planet.
