I am passionate about the marine environment and I believe we have the responsibility to promote what we learn everyday what the ocean is giving us. We all have to protect Earth’s most fragile places. My favorite part of being underwater is when I am interacting with marine life.
My first discovery was in the Bahamas when I went on a vacation with my family. I had been snorkeling all my life in the Galapagos and off the Ecuador coast, and after I did scuba for the first time, I decided to come back to Ecuador and learn more about the ocean and all the marine life that my country has.
I admire Jacques Cousteau because he dedicated his life to discovering the ocean and showing us, through his documentaries, the wonders of ocean life.
I love traveling because there is so much to learn about our oceans and we can discover different species in each place we visit.
My Gara Carbon Fins — they help me to move very fast when I want to get close to marine life.
