#41 Jaimen Hudon
Listen now
Before his accident at 17, Jamien Hudson’s greatest love in life was diving and surfing in the ocean. But when he became a quadriplegic in a dirt bike crash in 2008, he thought he’d never be able to go in the water again. Years later in a chance meeting Jaimen was introduced to drone photography and videography and since has taken beautiful images of the ocean and its animals from above seen by hundreds of millions of people. But he still dreamed of one day going in the water again, and in this chat Jaimen tells us about his audacious attempt to do just that, despite being unable to swim.  You can find out more about his story in the documentary Jaimen Hudson: From Sky to Sea.
