About the Hosts
Brianna Ortega / Sea Together Magazine
Brianna founded Sea Together Magazine in December 2017 and grew up mainly between Oahu, Hawai’i and California. She currently calls the Pacific Northwest Coast home and is working on her graduate degree, an MFA in Art & Social Practice. Besides working as an environmental educator at a marine preserve and teaching art classes on occasion, and being addicted to keeping Sea Together going, she has shown her art in places like Portland, Italy, and San Diego.
Brianna enjoys bringing people together through creativity and surfing, and looks forward to facilitating some creative experiences on the trip. She is looking forward to facilitating this trip with the help of her positive friend, Jen, (who she actually met through Sea Together)…
