Breezy’s Bio

As a 30 year old going on 13, I continue to search for full-time employment, trying to break away from the vicious cycle of living paycheck to paycheck, and through hard work and dedication I have been creating my own opportunities by combining my skill set, experience, and knowledge, coining the title; Ocean M.E.S.E. Mariner, Educator, Scientist, Explorer. Educated as a multidisciplinary scientist and mariner, educator, and business entrepreneur by trade, I am a modern day explorer with the ocean being my home, my workplace, and playground. I have been to all 50 States, all 13 Provinces and Territories in Canada, 6 out of 7 continents, 4 out of 5 oceans, even the Geographic North Pole. From backpacking in Australia, seafloor mapping around the Marshall Islands, snowboarding in Switzerland, to geological mapping in Antarctica, and snorkelling the Northwest Passage, I look to inspire the next generation of scientists and explorers. My live simply life parallels the Flyin Ryan Course Values. My free time is sparse, as I continue to juggle managing seasonal tourism businesses and running a marina on Block Island, serving as the captain aboard vessels, and instructing snowboarding, scuba diving, and boating, all while trying to feed my thirst for adventure.
