About your host

I'm a lifelong ocean advocate who loves using photography to tell stories. My mermaid makeover was named one of the 10 most "Weird & Wonderful" Experiences by Airbnb, and has been featured in Bustle, Travel + Leisure, and USA TODAY. I've been part of the "mermaiding" community for 7 years, and I've performed as a mermaid at events benefitting local nonprofits.
