I'm Maia Insinga and I am from Lake Oswego, OR. I enjoy surfing, camping, photography and yoga. I am a third year undergraduate majoring in Psychology and minoring in both Spanish and Marine Conservation and Management. In the Science Filmmaking Internship, I will be creating a surfing film on the Oregon Coast. As someone who surfs on the Oregon Coast, I am excited to showcase the beauty and meaning behind Oregon Coast surfing. I am looking forward to expanding my photography experience into videography by learning the ins and outs of filmmaking. Also, I am looking forward to spending lots of time at the coast and getting to collaborate with experienced and great people I hope to learn the entire process of science filmmaking from start to finish, as it would be a fantastic skill to have for my future plans of working in marine conservation. Being able to showcase the marine environment in a creative way would allow me to bring to light important issues or topics for people to experience themselves. Also, I have loved photography for a while now and I am excited to get more experience with videography.
My favorite cartoon or comic book character is Larry the Lobster.
My favorite place to escape to is Agate Beach, Oregon.
My favorite comfort food is sea salt and caramel ice cream.
