Any place I live I encourage recycling in the household and teach the people in my life about the importance of avoiding single-use plastics. When I refuse a bag or water bottle, I explain why to help encourage the person to think twice in the future.

What is your favorite way to connect with the ocean?
Being out at sea in the open ocean. Sunrise and sunset are my favorite times of the day.
If you were a marine animal what would you be?
A dolphin – they have the unique ability to make anyone happy when you are in their presence. Dolphins are one of the smartest marine animals and also the most playful!
