Salty Blue Water. 2017 has been a year on the seas for me! This summer, I was lucky enough to set out as a photographer with the @RozaliaProject on an expedition sailing along coastal Maine to educate about the problem of marine debris. It was a successful trip - sights of mola mola and minke whales and playing with bioluminescence just added to the excitement! This fall my girlfriend and I worked on a ranch on the North Shore of Oahu. We had some amazing experiences from swimming with humpback whales, sea turtles, and more beautiful reef fish then I could count to surfing and sailing on those blue pacific waves. I’m finishing the year visiting family on the gulf coast of Florida and from SUPing with manatees to encounters with giant Atlantic hermit crabs and baby sharks I have found myself constantly fantasized by the ocean. Very excited to see what 2018 brings - hopefully cleaner oceans and more adventures.. hey, maybe I’ll get to finish my undergrad degree! This is a picture of my brother (with the new camera 😏) who gets just as stoked about the ocean as I now do!
