WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO BECOME INVOLVED IN FILM PRODUCTION?
I think film is the most powerful medium to tell stories. I hope to make an impact through film.
WHEN DID YOU KNOW YOU WANTED TO BE AN ENVIRONMENTALIST?
I grew up sailing and swimming in the ocean and I have always felt happiest near the ocean. When I recently realized the fragile state of the ocean, it made me want to teach children about how we can care for and protect our ocean. I believe that if we can inspire young children to care about our environment, it will help to instill long-lasting environmentally responsible behaviors. My ocean camp on Nantucket this summer was based around art projects, film, and interactive beach walks in order to make learning creative and fun.

FAVORITE MORNING ROUTINE
I love starting the morning with yoga. Moving my body is often a more effective wake-up than coffee!

FAVORITE RECENT ADVENTURE
Last summer I sailed with a crew of all women through the North Pacific Ocean in order to study and raise awareness about the plastic problem in our seas. It was one of the most eye-opening and inspiring experiences that I have ever had. The organization is called eXXpedition and they are about to kick-off an around-the-world trip to continue the data collection. I hope to join one of the legs!
Bike rides through Sconset, a tennis match at the Casino, dinner at Chanticleer, and always a quick stop for ice cream at the Sconset market.
