Since my first snorkeling trips to Hawai'i in 2010, I have became increasingly concerned about the deteriorating health of my favorite reefs and have been reading extensively about similar challenges all over the world. This past summer, as my father's health deteriorated, I decided to do what I could to help save the coral reef ecosystems that we depend on for life, spirit and economic well-being. Using my past experience in environmental advocacy and sustainable business as a lens, I am traveling the world to research and write stories about what people are doing to protect the undersea places that they hold dear. I hope to expand your awareness of local solutions to adapt to climate change and empower you to proactively work toward a more sustainable, resilient relationship with the ocean. If we think globally and act accordingly, you and I can be a part of the solution.

I’ve been in love with the natural world for as long as I can remember. My childhood dream of becoming a marine biologist like Jack Cousteau didn’t pan out, but it influenced my current work as Strategic Consultant and Visual Artist. In my daylight hours, I team up with others to strategize, design, and implement the most sustainable - and uplifting - future for all those involved. By night, I am devoted to my practice and passion for creating marine and nature inspired art. As EOA’s Social Media Associate, I feel profoundly grateful to contribute to and uplift Frederick's mission to raise awareness about the state of world’s reefs, and show how one person's dedication - and communities' on the ground efforts - can make waves, and eventually change the tides of the world.
