Maria on a cruise in the SAB

I grew up in South Portland, Maine, a small coastal northern New England town five minutes from the ocean. Although I always hated the smell of fish, got seasick on boats, and never liked to swim in the ocean (it was way too cold), I somehow fell in love with marine science. My first taste of oceanography was my high school marine biology class, after that I knew I wanted to study the ocean. For my bachelors degree I attended the University of Miami in Coral Gables Florida.


Andy on a cruise in the Gulf

I am blessed to have two grandfathers who have taught me how to embrace life. Living on a beautiful lake, one grandfather taught me that life is like fishing - the more lines you have in the water, the more adventures you will enjoy. My other grandfather, a professor of biology, taught me at a young age to appreciate life in its ever-changing form. Just as fish change and grow from a tiny egg to an alevin, and then from fry to adult, humans have the capacity to greatly expand their minds through their life experiences.
