Ellen Curren of Winchester grew up watching the ships navigate Port of Providence from her back yard in Cranston, RI, and sailing on Narragansett Bay. After a career in NYC working as a Theatre Film and Television Agent, she lived on the coast of The Bass Strait in Australia and was inspired by that nation’s commitment to ocean stewardship. She is concerned about the global impact of pollution, overfishing, and especially climate change on our ocean’s health.

Ellen is Director of Outreach, curates and contributes to the blog and serves on the Executive Committee for W2O.
