Missions Statement

In forming this association, my aim is to assemble a energetic, fun, semi-professional, eclectic (and probably eccentric) group of artists/writers/photographers/SCUBA divers/underwater photographers/videographers/computer programmers/boat captains, naturalists, philanthropists, and others to work on films, books, exhibits, and other projects that relate to the underwater and coastal worlds.

That is to say, I would like a group of dynamic individuals with varied talents to come together for a single goal –to work on a few fun projects together.

I am an oceanographer turned neurobiologist. I’ve been diving since I was in high school (a few decades ago) and I’ve done a fair bit of diving both off the coast of New England as well as a dozen or so tropical destinations including Truk Lagoon and Palau. I’ve had an avid interest in photography both commercial (advertising) and travel/nature/scientific/underwater. I have a place on Cape Cod and I have a few boats that I using for diving. I love all types of art and writing, and most of all I love PROJECTS.

I would like to combine all of these interests and find individuals with similar passions to pursue some combinatorial goals. Hope you have some interest and insight. Please join our group! Joe
