    I want to get people excited about science and in some cases to change misconceptions.

    I also like to share my knowledge and keep the public interested in what is going on.

    I want to share my passion for science and mostly my passion for the marine ecosystems.

    I have participated in science fairs and events and I am a scientist you can skype in the Skype-a-scientist program!
