Inspired by an extraordinary opportunity so
rare that it only comes along once in a lifetime. In 1977, I was privileged enough to meet
globally renowned French naval officer, explorer, ecologist, filmmaker, scientist,
photographer, and author Jacques Cousteau at Seattle's Pacific Science Center. Jacques's
enthusiasm, passion, and love of the sea and its life forms was incredible to see first hand. Listening to
Jacques share his stories, films, and photos from his life's work affected me in a very profound way.
