I Am San Francisco:Nick Whittlesey
As an employee of one of the largest management consulting firms on the planet, Nick Whittlesey counters a daunting workload with surf sessions at San Francisco’s famous Ocean Beach.
Yin and yang has long been a central concept in Chinese philosophy, explaining not only how opposites can coexist but also create equilibrium. Throughout his life, Nick Whittlesey has continuously found sanctuary in straddling two opposing ideas. Half-Ethiopian and half-Swedish, he was born into a life of beautiful duality. Twenty-six years later, he balances the physical effort of trimming the best waves the Pacific Ocean has to offer with the formidable mental grind of working for one of the largest management consulting firms on the planet.
