My story

“Every holiday, my parents had to search for me as I was always more underwater than above. I had been fascinated by the underwater world since I can remember. At the age of 21, I saw a research station on the Great Barrier Reef. I then realized that there are people who work on and with the ocean. At that moment, I committed to always combine my passion for the ocean with my career. It became my goal to make the ocean healthy and a sustainable place again. In the last couple of years, I have had the privilege to work on great projects. From teaching children in Argentina about plastic pollution to creating a reusable eco ‘plastic’ bag and working for Dopper. I am very happy to continue working on my goal at The Ocean Movement”.
