Experiencing Interruptions?

Jellyfish Soup

With so many lines in the water, we're fast on a slippery slide towards slime, an ocean so overfished by our appetites and greed, that future generations will only have jellyfish soup left to dine on.

Combing dance with underwater photography, this short film is connected to a behavioral change campaign, inspiring us to use the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch guide to purchase only sustainable seafood for a 30 day period.

With her Bachelor’s degree in Biology, advanced open-water scuba certification, experience running an ecommerce business and more than 20 years as a dancer, she’ll be the first to admit that her skillsets and work history are an eclectic mix.
