Did you know that the same geometric ratio that forms the spiraling pattern in nautilus shells, abalone shells, and snail shells is the same ratio that arranges the fronds ("leaves") of giant kelp, is the same ratio that governs the spiraling of our milky way galaxy, which also found in the proportionality of the human body, and also determines the spiraling of DNA in every cell of ALL living things? It's the golden ratio (phi). 

Nature is amazing. And we, humans, are connected to nature in so many ways, no matter how hard we try to separate ourselves and put ourselves at the top (trying to control nature). We are one with nature and it's beauty permeates through everything including ourselves. My passion is to show everyone this beauty and facilitate connections with nature in this way. 

I'll guide you underwater and open your eyes to the creatures often overlooked. I'll give you health and beauty tips using algae, and make you delicious seaweed cocktails. I'll lead you into the mountains to forage for wild foods and make seasonal drinks! Come out and explore with me!
