Diving

I was interested in diving for a long time and finally got a chance when I took a sabatical with Esther in XXXX. We trainined for PADI scuba certification in LA and then finished it in Australia at the Great Barrier Reef. She was so reluctant to learn but decided to not miss out (despite her predisposition to getting seasick), haha. We ended up loving it and dove Nusa Penida after and then got our advanced certification in Kalymnos. Also got NAUI nitrox certified.

Later I was interested in freediving, and Esther booked us training/safety classes with Lance in Redondo. We honed our skills on a Hawaii trip, and I absolutely love freediving and go out regularly in the Santa Monica Bay, Palos Verdes, and Catalina. Shout out to my main freediving partner, Björn!

Thank you to Eco Dive Center, Ocean Safari, In2Deep, and especially Captain Dave for the scuba help and training. And thanks to Lance Lee Davis at Socal Spear-It for the freediving training!

Climbing

I really, really enjoy climbing. The problem-solving combined with the needed strength and dexterity is a cross-section that resonates with me. Only big problem is that I'm incredibly scared of heights, so it's a real battle. The first time I had to do an anchor was the scariest moment of my life.

Thank you Esther for introducing it to me and being patient while this gumby learned the ropes.

Hiking

Hiking is a good medititative and strenuous activity for me. Like climbing, it's a great way to explore the world and see untouched areas.

Sports

After several ACL injuries, I don't play much sports, but I love playing basketball the most.
