Team 12-4, AKA Cephalosquad, AKA Ctenophoreteam!! We’ve had endless laughs and puns on all our dives. We’ve filmed a gulper eel, collected angular basalt rocks and admired sea cucumbers galore. We’ve seen where no human has seen before and it’s been a blast! You’ve all helped make my first time aboard the EV Nautilus a fabulous time at all hours of the day here in Papahānaumokuākea MNM 😘

Holding the massive @nasajpl gripper after it was tested at the bottom of the ocean today! Its many clawed fingers can hold onto rocks to anchor the ROVs, and can pick up heavy objects. It also can be used to induce nightmares.

Pitching and rolling through the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument. We’ve been mapping the seamounts as we pass over them and will hopefully be able to put the ROVs in the water tomorrow to start exploring!

Today we departed Honolulu, and now we’re on our way to the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument aboard the Exploration Vessel @nautiluslive! As a video engineer (along with my friend @e.ranney), I’ll get to work with the ROV pilots to bring the finest images to your screen, and to other viewers and scientists all around the world! Check out nautiluslive.org where we broadcast live 24/7 - you can be part of pure ocean exploration and see parts of the deep sea that have never been seen before.

Hiking to a buena vista of the Appalachians in Virginia with good friends on a glorious weekend (and beating Sam handily at tetherball) - it doesn’t get much better.

We also explored where Dirty Dancing was filmed and discovered that the lake has drained because it’s on a fault line 🤷‍♀️ #FunFact 💃🕺 #DirtyDancing #Blacksburg #AppalachianTrail

Sure we had our MA Wildlife Filmmaking graduation this weekend, but the real highlight was meeting my new bowtruckle travel buddy thanks to @epaish. My yet-to-be-named friend has already hit a few milestones (first 🍕!) and is now embarking on its first international flight back to the US. Good thing it has a passport!
