Rey supports the Fishery Solutions Center’s work as the 2017-2018 Roger Arliner Young Marine Conservation Diversity Fellow (also known as RAY). Rey works to update, improve and strengthen FSC’s tools through making the information accessible as visuals and games. He contributes his perspective and approaches related to diversity, equity and inclusion to the design and development of the FSC’s tools and toolkit. He believes the power of storytelling that uplift people’s voices can contribute to a positive and empathetic change within the marine conservation movement.
Within the year, Rey plans to continue exploring how to transform science knowledge and data into creative ways. Rey holds a B.A. in Media Studies and Asian American Studies from Pitzer College. Outside the office, Rey likes to discover hidden gems around the Bay, read creative writing and make art through photography or illustrations.
