As the first African-American woman to host her own science television series, I am deeply passionate about inspiring the next generation to connect and understand the natural world. I've spent the last 10 years finding creative ways to convert my passion for the ocean and science into exciting, high-profile ways. In my latest science communication project, I serve as the host of a new STEM educational TV show which features the most current advances in bio-inspired technology and design called Xploration Nature Knows Best which aired nationwide on FOX (also available on HULU and Amazon Prime). I'm a graduate of the University of Miami with a degree in Marine Science & Biology — At age 21, I co-founded the Big Blue & You, which is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to inspiring and educating youth about marine conservation through arts and media. In addition to my love of marine science, youth outreach and the arts, I'm also a scuba diver, stand-up paddle boarder, digital influencer, curly girl and overall lover of the outdoors. As you learn more about my journey, I hope you will be inspired to shine your light unapologetically, use your unique set of gifts and follow your passion...whatever that might be!
