NEPO+ Community, Art & Technology 's current project with EcoMedia Compass™, a 501C3 Non-profit is working towards bringing awareness to the environmental devastation within the Salton Sea community. The creative collective is in progress of fundraising for EcoMedia Compass' annual Earth Day event on April 23, 2022.
NEPO+ aims to be a safe, supportive, and empowering organization that works with local artists and small businesses to cultivate a more mutually beneficial community.

A couple of years ago, @cultivatingwonder reached out to me about the upcoming book she was writing. The book's goal was to help students understand the challenges and the faces of oceanography. I received this in the mail and was overwhelmed by how inviting, accessible, and thorough the book was to tell the story. I'm honored to have been a part of this and excited to see the impact that it'll have. Your book is really cool, Christy; I'm inspired after having read this!
