Now his latest release,
Underwater Puppies
, is getting a splashy launch, making this an exciting time for him to return to Chapman and share his story with fellow alumni and friends. He’ll display his latest underwater images and talk about his journey, including how he volunteers his time to help shelter pets find forever homes.
