Semester at Sea

Semester at Sea

In Spring 2015, I served as the shipboard videographer for the Semester at Sea program, documenting students’ educational experiences during their semester-long, round-the-world voyage. Traveling westward from San Diego, California to Southampton, England, we visited 12 countries and 15 cities over the course of 112 days
