WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE WAY TO CONNECT WITH THE OCEAN?
Surfing is my favorite thing in the world, so I try to go whenever possible. I also love diving, swimming, body surfing… Kind of everything that has to do with the ocean!
IF YOU WERE A MARINE ANIMAL WHAT WOULD YOU BE?
A seal! They are fun, playful, social, and love to surf or lay lazy in the sun!
SHARE A FUN FACT ABOUT YOU AND SAILING:
I never considered a career in the sailing industry until I came across this role. I didn’t know a job like this actually existed! I am a keen traveler and ocean lover though, so I look forward to having some cool sailing tales to tell soon!
How do you live a more sustainable lifestyle?
I have changed my consumption habits a lot over the past years. I shop for groceries locally and seasonally, avoiding high food miles and unnecessary packing while supporting smaller businesses.
How do you encourage others to lead a more sustainable life?
Talking openly about issues and concerns without blaming or judging, asking genuine questions instead, and always assuming positive intentions. People don’t cause damage on purpose, it’s more a lack of awareness in most cases. Being too pushy rarely helps in the long run, which applies to literally every social situation.
I also have a lot to learn still and appreciate when people share their knowledge and best practices with me to adapt my habits.
