“I was just out of univer­sity and in Cal­i­for­nia for the sum­mer when I went on a whale-watch­ing trip. For the first two hours, there was noth­ing – I didn’t see a thing. And then sud­denly, with­out any warn­ing at all, a grey whale – it must have been 40 foot long – leapt out of the wa­ter. I was 21 at the time, but I still re­mem­ber it in slow-mo­tion: this whale ap­pear­ing out of nowhere and fall­ing back into the wa­ter with a huge splash. I re­mem­ber think­ing: this is what I want to do with the rest of my life! It all came from that one mo­ment.”
