Since he can remember, nature has been a central part of Sebastianโ€™s life. He was fortunate to grow up in the beach community of La Jolla, California, and spent his childhood mixing it up in the ocean. As a young boy, he lost his father to suicide, which would later deeply inspire his path in life and inspire his writing. Sebastian is the author of The Adventures of Enu and Ashes in the Ocean. 



Sebastian is passionate about sharing his story of living through and learning from his father's suicide. His intention is to help create space for conversations about suicide, mental health, and other difficult topics - to break down the stigma around these topics.  He speaks to a variety of audiences such as high school and college students, teachers, medical and mental health professionals, as well as suicide prevention/advocacy groups.
