BIOGRAPHYBorn in the Philippines and with a professional background in EMS, Sebastian has been chasing tail since the age of 3. He was introduced to the sport of Fishing by his Father overseas in Guam and Hawaii while Shark and Tilapia fishing. Since then, his devotion to the sport is best described as an, "ever-lasting captivation".
He discovered Kayak Fishing in Southern Illinois while attending university studies in 2009. He began competitive Kayak Fishing in 2017, and describes Kayak Fishing as an escape, and like a box of chocolates, it elicits many different emotions.
According to ...Sebastian, "The addicting nature of the sport taps into tranquility, patience, self-discipline, attention to detail, jubilation, and so much more."
For 2021, he has taken a federal contract with Garda Federal to actively participate in the Child Immigration Crisis on the Texas border. Being absent from the water for up to 6 months will not prevent or subdue his passion for the sport, and he continues to return to chase tail on the competitive scene in the latter half of the year. Upon return, he also wants to establish a charity tournament to raise awareness and funds for American Cancer Society.
