Isurus oxyrinchus (mako shark). What do you dream about? Ever since I was a child I dreamed about diving with sharks and exploring the ocean. Thanks to growing up around the Smithsonian and reading stories about Challenger Deep and people like Jacques-Yves Cousteau. I wanted to explore like Jacques-Yves Cousteau and make a difference in ocean research. This is the path I started to take in college, which changed due to circumstances. However I have found that I may have an even bigger influence through my photography. It has the opportunity to open up conversation that can lead to conservation! #shark #mako #sandiego #adventure #explore #getoutside #conversation #conservation #protectouroceans #planetorplastic #natgeo #sandiegomagazine #visitsandiego

@projectkolika free diving with Isurus oxyrinchus (mako shark). Within a few min of setting up about 12 miles off the cost of San Diego, this juvenile mako shark showed up. It was a very inquisitive and curious shark that decided to stick around the entire time we were out there. Sharks are amazing creatures that are an important in ensuring a health ocean. So many people are scared of sharks due to the image that Hollywood has painted. The fact is that there are around 6 shark related fatalities a year in all the oceans. On the other hand did you know that according to the World Health Organization, about 725,000 people are killed every year by mosquito-borne diseases. The more you know about nature, the better your chances you’ll have a save and enjoyable experience. You are a guest in their habitat and thus it should be respected. Check out @projectkolika and @sdexpeditions for more information and an opportunity to learn about these spectacular animals! #shark #adventure #natgeo #explore #nature #sandiego @sandiegomag @fox5sandiego @sandiegouniontribune #nature #wildlife #mako #imagine #create #inspire

Isurus oxyrinchus, (shortfin mako shark). Spent the day out on and in the water with @projectkolika and @sdexpeditions , freediving with this beautiful shark. This shark stayed around the boat the entire afternoon, which was awesome. It was such an inquisitive and curious little shark. Did you know that the mako shark is the fastest shark in the world, with a capability to swim upwards to 46mph. Contrary to common belief, sharks 🦈 aren’t mindless man eaters as the movies portray them to be. Take the time to learn about sharks and how they are essential to a health ocean, because a healthy ocean means a healthy earth 🌍. Also the more you know the less likely you will encounter a shark accident. It is their ocean after all and you’re entering their home. #shark #sharkweek #natgeo #discoverychannel #nature #wildlife #ocean #mako #sandiego #discoversandiego #visitsandiego #sandiegomagazine #planetorplastic #protectouroceans #imagine #create #inspire

Needed to get out today to try and clear my mind. With no plan or destination, I threw the camera in the Jeep and just went. “Guard well within yourself that treasure, kindness.
