If you want something you’ve never had, then you’ve got to do something you’ve never done.
Freediving // Photography // Design // Art // Travel // Music // Life.
Having grown up by the beach in Sligo, Ireland, I was always a big fan of the water. I had tried scuba diving many times but when my friend introduced me to Freediving, I fell in love!
I then joined the MFC and have since made great friends, and really enjoy the weekly training sessions and social dives. For work, I manage a crisis facility for homeless people and so there is no better feeling than finishing work, and entering the peaceful world of Freediving be it in the pool or in the ocean.
Accidentally came across Freediving whilst on a family holiday to Barrier Reef and have fallen in love since. Still captivated by the concept of relaxing whilst holding your breath.
Piggybacking on the shoulders of my snorkeling siblings, discovering the treasures of the Mediterranean Sea (from Roman ruins to bizarre animals) is amongst the fondest memories of my childhood… and I haven’t got tired of exploring the sea yet !
In time, I added another motivation: the exploration of my inner sea through constant training and communion with nature.
In my spare time (when not freediving or swimming) I hold a precarious balance between a wife, two kids, and my work as software developer.
Enjoys spearfishing, photography and diving for diving’s sake. Can usually be found in or on the water. When on dry land is a scientist working in drug discovery.
