I am from Newport News, VA. While at COA, I’ve explored fisheries studies, production design, marine history, poetry, and visual arts. Some of my favorite classes were Social Arts Practice and Community-Based Marine Conservation; The Big Bang; the Horror Movie Monster course; and Fisheries, Fishermen, and Fishing Communities. When I’m not doing academic work, I like to read trashy novels, see Rocky Horror live, eat marzipan, paint things bright colors, and swim in any body of water I can get to. I love helping people think through and distill their ideas.
