Based in O'ahu - creating globally

I'm a marine conservationist, educator, creative, + writer. I believe creative education is a powerful tool that can create waves for our planet. I use my voice to advocate for conscious consumerism, corporate and political accountability, and above all - our oceans and those that depend on it.

I'm Carissa Cabrera

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; 

indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
