Bryce is an ocean explorer and connector, with over two decades of experience leading initiatives for ocean health, fisheries, and coastal cultures through private enterprise, film, and multimedia storytelling. 

Most recently, Bryce co-founded Moonjelly Foundation, a US based 501(c)(3). Moonjelly is an ocean regranter, pioneering a new, simplified funding lane to empower Indigenous ocean scientists and coastal communities.  

In 2004, he started Living Ocean Productions, with the goal of using powerful imagery and storytelling to bridge the communication gap between ocean science and the public. Since then, Bryce has created meaningful programming in over 40 countries and been nominated for an Emmy (Outstanding Cinematography: Documentary and Long Form) for the Netflix Original Film, Mission Blue.  

His other film work includes Leonardo DiCaprio's Before the Flood and The Lonliest Whale, National Geographic's Sea of Hope and Alien Deep, VICE on HBO, Discovery's Shark Week, Sex in the Sea, The Last Opelu Man, and Sacred Mountain. 

Bryce's client list includes Tesla, Red Bull, Samsung, ESPN, HBO, PBS, Discovery, National Geographic, Four Seasons Resorts, The Nature Conservancy, as well as various Aquariums and Museums worldwide. 

In 2009, Bryce founded Living Ocean LLC to focus on: creating high-grade fishmeal from commercial fish waste; developing a new transparent model for the tuna supply chain in the Pacific; and working with government, NGOs, and industry to bring a safe and innovative solution to the plastic waste issue in Hawaii. 

In 2011, Bryce co-founded Ocean Preservation Alliance - a hybrid business connecting the yachting and scientific communities through world-class exploration. OPAs success was making science and discovery relevant in yachting and this opened up new opportunities for collaboration, funding, and solutions. 

He has organized/led/joined high-level scientific and exploration expeditions to Midway Atoll, Palmyra Atoll, Niihau, Palau (x2), Tahiti, Fiji, Rarotonga, Australia (x2), New Zealand, Japan (x3), China (x2), India, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Egypt, Turkey, Italy, France, Canary Islands, Galapagos Islands (x2), Cocos Island, Islas de Revillagigedos (x3), Mexico (x5), Haiti, Grenada, St Johns, St Croix, Dominica, Saba, St. Lucia, Bermuda, Bahamas, Channel Islands, and the Florida Keys. 

Bryce is a proud husband and father of three, a Mission Blue Hope Spot Champion for Palmyra Atoll, and also sits on the International Board of Directors for WildAid.
