View Brian’s COOL Card

Brian is a pretty cool guy. He’s from Texas. A certified emergency medical technician (EMT) who likes to compose classical music, he explores caves on land and is also a certified cave diver, which means he not only explores underground caves but sometimes has to dive underwater to get to them!

Brian is also a marine microbiologist and was a marine technician aboard the research vessel R/V Cape Hatteras during a recent scientific experiment off the coast of NJ studying the Hudson River Plume.

Watch the video to find out more about Brian’s research.
