As a hyperactive and fearless youngster, one of Simen's favourite activities was free diving. The books 'Great shark stories' by Ron and Valerie Taylor and 'The Silent World' by Jacques Cousteau magnified his underwater love. It was here he found the Kipling poem, which, having never felt fear before (which Simen claims is due to his ADHD), truly fascinated him.
