From July 29th to August 17th, I’ll be on a a NOAA research vessel called the Reuben Lasker! Not sure what to expect other than I believe it’s going to be an incredible opportunity to experience what marine biologists experience while on these ships. Looking forward to new friendships and a wonderful story to tell!
Through my dear friends at Catalina Offshore Products, I was invited to a dinner event at NOAA in San Diego, California to demonstrate traditional gyotaku printing in front of a large crowd of marine scientists, environmentalists, and very eco-savy seafood chefs and commercial fishermen.
I think a very good impression was made as many new doors within the scientific community opened up immediately afterwards. I anticipate that I’ll be commuting to San Diego a lot more often in the very near future!
