As you may have guessed, sharks fascinate me, but you may not know that I’m also an environmental advocate and documentary artist. I began by getting my undergraduate degree in Marine Biology and Masters in Oceanography from the University of Rhode Island. Thank you to television for opening my eyes to our massive, greatly unexplored underwater world before I was able to explore it myself, which inspired my initial studies.
I took every opportunity to participate in shark conservation projects all over the world in places like Fiji, Hawaii, South African & Bahamas. Yes I’m very lucky, but promise that I’m even more grateful. So here’s where my passion, professional growth and experience led me to ask myself, “How can I educate the public about the sharks and the dangers facing their populations today?” My answer was, and still, is photography and videography. My mission it to help others feel as connected to what is happening underwater as I am.
I became a team member of 333 Productions, a hi-definition underwater cinematography production company. Our work has been featured on Discovery Channel, National Geographic, BBC, Facebook and many others. Along with Joe Romeiro we operate the R/V WARFISH, a custom built vessel that was specially designed for wildlife filming.
