Personal Connection to the Ocean

  • My father swam his way through school, watched the TV show Sea Hunt from his Queens apartment and later became a certified as a SCUBA diver when in the Air Force. I spent a lot of time around the ocean as a kid, waiting impatiently for my dad to come back from his dives so I could hear about the details of his adventure. I was certified in SCUBA at thirteen. I picked up surfing afterward and it has become the healthiest of addictions. I’m mostly a weekend warrior, but I paddle out pretty consistently year-round, mostly in Montauk and sometimes closer to NYC or warmer and more consistent spots further away. Now, I’m regularly educated on obscure sea creatures by my boys and enjoying that.
