About Martino Kuntze
My name is Martino Kuntze, I have been in love with the Ocean since a very young age and the memory of learning how to swim is one of the most vivid and precious memory I have. Being around the ocean gives me joy and I try to go swimming in salt water every day. Whenever possible, I also try connect to the ocean through some of my main passions, which are sailing, surfing, scuba-diving and photography.
I am an economist by training and I am passionate about empirical research and data analysis. I have been able to combine this interest with my love for the ocean by joining “Blue Eco Line”, an lively Italian start-up which is developing technical solutions to monitor and intercept riverine litter in order to tackle the problem of marine pollution at its roots. My dream is to contribute with my interdisciplinary competences and with my strong passion to raise public awareness, and to preserve and restore the ocean’s health and liveliness. In doing so I hope to return to the ocean – at least in small part- some of the joy I receive from it.
