Chief Cook - Italy

I am the chief cook on The Sam Simon and this is my fourth Antarctic Whale Defence Campaign. I joined Sea Shepherd in July 2010 on board The Steve Irwin after finishing my degree in Political Science in Rome, Italy. I also got the opportunity to do a campaign on board The Bob Barker for Operation Divine Wind and then joined The Sam Simon when we took ownership of the vessel in Cairns, when it was still named the New Atlantis.

Aside from the anti-whaling campaigns, I have taken part in a Blue Fin Tuna defence campaign in the Mediterranean and a campaign in the Faeroe Islands to protect the Pilot Whales.
