MeWater Foundation / City Surf Project |  Ocean Beach, CA (2019)
Taking elementary and middle school students from at-risk communities and showing them the therapeutic power of getting in the ocean and splashing around for no reason at all.

Led property assessment and roof repair teams for homes in southeastern Puerto Rico (majority still without power) in response to September 2017's Category 5 Hurricane Maria
