Since he can remember, nature has been a central part of Sebastian’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. 


The Adventures of Enu

It is with great enthusiasm and gratitude that I have the opportunity to introduce you to Enu. The legend was passed down to me from my father. When I was very young he would tell me adventurous tales of this mystical creature from all over the world. Now it is my turn to share Enu with you. This is Enu’s debut into the public forum – a literary lair to preserve his lore. Since I first heard about Enu my life has never been the same. Enu has changed the way I see the world and it is my hope that he does the same for you. Available now on



Sebastian and his partner Sonya co-founded Nature Unplugged which offers developmental coaching with the focus of cultivating healthy relationships with technology and reconnection to nature. In addition to coaching, Nature Unplugged offers workshops and retreats. 



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.
