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.
