"I've been excited about working on the ocean with my family in our marine business since I was a boy. In my work as a documentary filmmaker, I was privileged to work with Dr. Ballard on his expedition to the Britannic, and since then I've been excited to use my skills to help broadcast the adventures of the Nautilus and share them with the next generation of explorers."
