In addition to these outdoor pursuits, I find personal satisfaction in dedicating my time to build personal gaming computers, while also demonstrating a fervent commitment to the care and maintenance of aquatic ecosystems. I fell passionate about aquatic ecosystems so I still have a way to connect to my love for surfing which I used to pursue daily at Maroubra beach in Australia.
