Before I became addicted to scuba diving I was working in the pharmaceutical industry in Switzerland as clinical trial manager. I quit my job at the end of 2012 to go travelling.
The idea was to backpack around the world for 2 years and I thought that after that I would feel like settling down, find a good job again and so on. The longer I spent travelling the less I felt like moving back to Europe. Therefore I keep on travelling around the world and exploring the oceans. It took less than a year for me to go from backpacking to scuba diving most of the time.
I’m not backpacking anymore; I just couldn’t get all that dive gear in one single backpack!
Recently I spend most of my time in Southeast Asia. The coral triangle offers the highest biodiversity and with it some of the weirdest critters I love to photograph.
However, next I will explore another continent including some dry weeks looking at land animals in Uganda and Madagascar. I will keep you updated.
