Who is Terence

'I need the sea
because it teaches me'
— Pablo Neruda

Australian Waterman

I am a passionate waterman and endurance athlete, originally from Australia and now (mostly) based in the watery parts of Southern California. Nature has always been a significant part of my life, and I feel a deep connection with the ocean and am fortunate to live, breathe and bathe in its wonder every day. I feel that the wild and untamed ocean brings me back to a natural state of being.


In early 2018 I launched a passion project called The Ocean Lover where I intend to build a deeper awareness and connection with the ocean for people through sharing personal stories, creating and investing in ocean-related projects. You can access more about me and my passion through an Ocean Lover interview.

Health, wellness and consciousness are the core of my Being. I choose simple and deep, over complex and shallow and thrive in environments where I can teach, learn and share with different cultures. My intentional lifestyle provides me the ability to live my dreams and explore the world and its beauty.


What is important to me – play, expansion, nourishment, awareness, vitality, wonder, connection, energy, liberation, gratitude, flow, curiosity, simple observation, intuition, compassion.


Leonardo da Vinci eloquently captures my view of the world: “Human subtlety will never devise an invention more beautiful, more simple or more direct than does nature, because in her inventions nothing is lacking, and nothing is superfluous”.
