Ocean Classroom Maritime History and Literature Educator

Hometown: Bozeman, MT

School: Brown University

Previous sailing experience: Corwith Cramer with the Sea Education Association. I also just bought my first sailboat: a Catalina 25.

Previous teaching experience: Ran planetarium operations for Bozeman’s Taylor Planetarium, coached High School debate in Providence, RI, and currently run the education non-profit Project Empathy.

Hobbies: Sailing (naturally), coding, playing drums and guitar, writing, cycling, and backpacking. I enjoy the company of good friends and making new ones.

Why I’m excited to work for World Ocean School: My first time sailing was part of a sailing school program and it was the most memorable academic semester of college. I am excited to awaken an excitement to sail and learn about Earth’s oceans in the next generation of youth.
