I needed to focus [energy] on something outside of myself. That something, it turned out, became the oceans.
—Ted Danson, author of Oceana
What advice would you give a high school student who expressed an interest in pursuing a career in your field?
Be prepared for a long and hard road. Bang on everyone’s door, ask questions, get involved in everything that it makes sense to. If considering going the self-employed route, be a jack of all trades to pay the bills, but develop your specialty area of interest and market, market, market yourself.
