me and Al Gore

I had the honor of meeting Al Gore at a recent Ocean Discovery Institute event, and even got the chance to do so with the (incredible) new Dean of University of San Diego's College of Arts and Sciences, Noelle Norton. A wonderful experience, and he is clearly a man who values education, diversity, and the sciences. 

 

Regrettably, I do not have a picture I can put up of myself with Mr. Gore, so instead here I am with one of our Ocean Discovery Institute Ocean Leaders, and you will have to imagine that she is him.
