“Being in the water is a part of my DNA. My dad taught my siblings and I to swim before we could walk. Since then, if there’s rain, I’m playing in it. If there’s a pool, I’m jumping in it. Some of my favorite memories are hanging on my dad’s back swimming, bumping up to barracuda and jellyfish in the ocean along the Florida coast.”
“PFI intermediate and advanced courses opened my eyes to a whole new world of possibilities. Over the past few years, I have been introduced to wonderful people who allowed me to push my limits in freediving. Representing Team USA with my dad is a tremendous opportunity and I’m super stoked, to represent.”
