Hi - I’m Miles!

Miles is a Florida kid who’s ocean accomplishment include finding dozens of sharks teeth on Amelia Island, boogie boarding the Florida East Coast, and snorkeling the Dry Tortugas. He lives in a house where marine conservation is a frequent dinnertime topic and feels strongly about his obligation and opportunity to help the ocean.

Picture It: Summer, 2018

After watching countless hours of Shark Week, our founder Miles (then 6) spent a LOT of time thinking and talking about the challenges facing our oceans and the critters that call them home. He was particularly moved by watching Shark Tank on Shark Week (even if he was confused as to why the sharks were people, and not actual sharks), especially Mark Cuban and Shark Allies. Miles resolved to help somehow and started talking to his Mom about donating his weekly allowance to save the sharks.

After some discussion, they resolved to find a way to support ocean conservation work across a number of important issues and over a longer time frame than a single donation would allow. Miles decided that t-shirts, hats, and stickers for kids and their grown-up allies would allow his generation of ocean lovers to wear their commitment proudly and proceeds from each sale could go to any number of great organizations.
