Mission Statement

50% of profits are allocated to marine conservation ​content creation and strategic communication ​donations to marine conservation organizations.

Featured organization


Our second featured organization isn’t actually an organization, but a movement.

Trashpaddlers GLOBAL was an idea I had in 2012 while fishing garbage and cigarette butts out of ​the Missouri and Nishnabotna rivers outside of Omaha, Nebraska. After returning to school in ​2020,​ Washington State University let me spend an entire semester flushing out the idea.

With all the summer gatherings taking place in July (United States), this ​felt like an appropriate month to feature a litter clean up movement!

Our mission at Trashpaddlers GLOBAL is to leave our lakes, rivers, oceans, and shorelines cleaner ​than we found them. We believe that if we each clean up our own corners of the world, we are ​cleaning the planet at large. Our goal is to inspire as many people a possible to brake for trash, no ​matter how small it may seem.

Together, everything is possible.

Projects in Development

The Killer Journey...

Born in La Jolla in 1976, I’ve lived on both coasts and a few places in ​between. In 2000, while working as an adventure guide in Colorado, I ​was invited to apply to International Stuntschool in Seattle. It was love ​upon landing.

In 2001, I moved to Wilmington, NC, to train with a Stunt Coordinator ​named John Copeman. After three years of training with the now ​Emmy-Nominated Copeman on shows such as Dawson’s Creek, I set ​my sights on writing and directing but had no idea how to get there. I ​continued to devour opportunities on shows such as One Tree Hill, and ​Eastbound and Down.

While training as a stuntwoman in Wilmington, I traveled to Myrtle ​Beach and worked undercover in a nightclub for a dark comedy I was ​writing called Character Shoes, a coming-of-age story within a story...

In 2008, inspiration struck for my first film, There Will Be No Stay.

After three years of writing both and dancing to fund the research, I ​relocated to Omaha, Nebraska to learn production from Dana Altman ​at North Sea Films. In addition to various commercial and independent ​film projects, I produced music videos for bands such as Bright Eyes, ​Icky Blossoms, and The Faint.

This is when I began working with Independent Spirit Award-​winning filmmaker and musician, Nik Fackler and Emmy Award-​winning cinematographer Jeremy Osbern.

After seven years, There Will be No Stay was completed and ​sold to an Indie label, FilmBuff. I gave everything away, ​downsized to a dive bag, and began to focus on recovery ​through comedy and Character Shoes. In 2019, development ​was funded and the pilot was completed. Then, COVID…

IIn 2020, during a pandemic-inspired master class in ​​conservation, I decided to return to school and pivot to ​marine conservation communications and filmmaking.

Further research led ​me to a captive orca named Tokitae ​and her critically endangered Southern Resident Killer ​Whale family as well as a dynamic group of experts and ​activists dedicated to saving them.

A Killer Journey-Tokitae’s ​Return is the film for which this ​company was formed and the first project that will be ​funded by company proceeds.

The documentary is in its third year of development and will ​begin production in the summer of 2024.

Stay tuned and let’s collaborate!
