“I had an advisor during my undergraduate shark research in the Turks and Caicos Islands, Dr. Aaron Henderson, who truly solidified my career trajectory. We had been on the water in the scorching sun for 14 hours straight without tagging a single shark. I was standing on the bow of our boat scanning for fins, and apparently had a big smile on my face. Dr. Henderson asked me, “Nick, why [on earth] are you smiling? It’s absolutely scorching out here and we haven’t tagged a thing!” I responded saying that to me, everything about that moment was pure bliss. After that, he said, “I won’t tell you what to do in your career, but if in this moment you are truly content, you are meant to be a marine biologist.”
