I am gay and I am a biologist and marine scientist.//


I am a double major in biology and marine science student at the University of Miami. I am currently researching marine genomics in Atlantic Killifish (Fundulus heteroclitus). I am also active in coral restoration efforts of several different endangered species of tropical Atlantic corals. I have extensive animal husbandry experience and have worked at many prominent AZA facilities including Shedd Aquarium and Mote Marine Laboratory. I am currently an aquarist volunteer at the Frost Museum of Science. My career interest include the public aquarium industry, forensic biology and promoting diversity in STEM fields.
