Hello Ocean


Hello Ocean, co-founded in 2015 and directed by Teresa, facilitates ocean science and media to engage the public and inform legislation. We bring together engineers, scientists, programmers, the maritime industry, and the recreational boating community in collaborative citizen science research on the oceans most pressing issues. We provide research-under-sail expeditions to both seasoned scientists and passionate early career scientists doing pioneering work.

I love working with teams on multi-element projects that maximize community engagement. That’s why I co-founded Hello Ocean to support science through multi-media, citizen science, and research-under-sail expeditions. My work is inspired by thousands of miles at sea as a captain. I care about stories that draw on the intersection of science, culture, and heart, providing a new perspective on the world. Now a graduate student at the UC Santa Cruz science journalism program, I plan to continue using multi-media to inspire people to create solutions.
