Years ago on a trip to Micronesia I discovered the magic and purity of pearls in their natural habitat, a true treasure in “no mans land” and I have never lost that image.
From 1991 I dedicated my life to pearls.
I left for French Polynesia to be surrounded by beautiful shells, amazing treasures were there to be discovered though in pretty rough waters!
I was closing in on my treasure; my strong emotions overrode any fear of the ocean. Finally I could fish my first pearls with my own hands; my future had started.
From the Polynesian atolls I went to Indonesia, Australia, Thailand, Philippines, Japan and China in search of new contacts, new pearls and new emotions. It was no longer a strange world but an exciting new one.
From Sharks Bay to Pirates Coast, from the enchanting Polynesian lagoons to Ago Bay, I covered long and fantastic distances.
Most of my 400 dives were in French Polynesia, Micronesia, Indonesia and Madagascar. I have seen hundreds of different creatures, on deep or shallow waters, but the reason I have enjoyed them is because I don't need to see a hammer head shark or a whale shark to be happy, I just love to breathe underwater (and stay away from the office).
