Stuart was not only an accomplished Photographer, but also an Artist. What set him apart was his ability to capture “life” in his images. Not only underwater but above. His photos made you feel if you were there, part of the scene.

While a designer in real life, I developed CoCoCheznaynay® SecretAgent of Truth & Style™ as a branding vehicle and a truth-seeking character who disperses CoCoCourage, wit and wisdom. CoCo’s about owning all of who you are and facing your fears. When I started scuba lessons, this unknown, overwhelming performance anxiety/fear made me realize I had masked being bullied as a child, never knowing the extent of the damage – this is a danger in thinking we will teach others.
